Pétrus Boumal made a social media outing in which he accused Samuel Eto’o of having weighed all his weight for the selection of Wilfried Kaptoum who did not deserve to be selected among the 23 indomitable lions who were to take part in the event. the last Egyptian CAN:
” Joel Epalle (the second assistant coach, editor’s note) told me: the coach (Clarence Seedorf, Ed.) Is obliged to take (Wilfried) Kaptoum because he is the son of Eto’o. If he takes me, I have to play. Even the friendly against Zambia, I showed him, the coach was embarrassed, he could not even look me in the eye. After he called me in his room to tell me: I’m sorry. I told him: there is no problem, it’s my country, I know my country, I know how it goes, there is no problem. He let go before continuing:
” There is the Oyongo group, Anguissa, Fai, guys, they do not like Eto’o. They do not like Eto’o because they understand that he is doing too much tricks. The eve of the match (friendly against Zambia, Editor’s note) is where there was confirmation that Ouguéné and I are not going to the CAN. The players were shocked; even Choupo-Moting went to see the coach. They were shocked. Seedorf is a dishonest person. First, he is no one like coach. He is too bad . he added.
“ Kaptoum, he does not play in Seville, but he is selected because he is the son of Eto’o. Even if he does not play, he is happy to be there, but in any case, he can not claim a place of titularity. ”
Words that particularly shocked Samuel Eto’o. The former Barcelona striker believes that young Boumal was manipulated by his critics. But because Eto’o is not mean, he will not go to court. Eto’o even says that if he was mean, he would have killed him with his own hands:
” If I were a bad boy I would have filed a complaint against Boumal, I would have even killed him with my own hands, but I’m not mean and I hope he’s listening to me […] he says how he arrived in the national team, if he paid he must say it, “he said.
Recall that at the time of the release of Boumal, the national team was led by Clarence Seedorf. Samuel Eto’o said he had not influenced the coach’s choice of words: ” Clarence Seedorf made his decisions and he takes them. He chose not to align Zambo Anguissa, but me as a supporter I was in all my states. Because for me, until this famous match against Nigeria Zambo was the best player. Those who push journalists to make tendentious comments sit in offices. It does not interest them the results of the Cameroon national team. ”
