On the strength of this observation, Cameroonian ex-international Samuel Eto’o spits out of control. The player calls the federations to give a chance to the local coaches instead of running constantly after European “saviors” who do not really accomplish the long-awaited miracle.
“Africa must believe in Africans. There are so many players who represent their country at the highest level, they retire and get coaching diplomas, but they have never had a chance in their country … .it’s my opinion and not that of the Cameroonian Federation. What I would like to see is more conviction about African talent in coaching on the continent. We can do better with an African coach because he understands where the players come from, “Samuel Eto’o told Independent Online.
A call that has had a favorable response to fans of football, and which will certainly raise a desire from African federations. Samuel Eto’o is, must we remember, unavoidable in Cameroonian and African football and his opinion is very important for the development of continental football.
