This Thursday, Cameroon struggles to beat Burundi (1-0) on the first day of qualifying for the CAN 2023. If the result is positive, the president of the Cameroonian federation Samuel Eto’o did not appreciate at all the manner and attitude of his players. And he let them know in the locker room in his own way.
“I am just not happy. You represent the national team of Cameroon. I don’t care who’s in front of you, you have to do the job. I cried for years because we missed the World Cup, but I know what a problem I had. It’s not going to happen as long as I’m president. I took this chair to change things. No one has a guaranteed place on this team. If you want to wear this team jersey, you do the job. Otherwise, don’t come and I’ll be happy. I will play with children. I have been in your place for a very long time. You tell yourself I’m a bastard, but I was the best sitting there and I know why I missed it. I will give you everything even for my life in the best conditions. But when we come, it’s Cameroon. There is nothing more beautiful. I would give my life for this country. I will get there with or without you. If you want to be on the road, you have to move. No one is guaranteed to be at the World Cup. And if that’s what I saw today, no one will be there. “
“I’m not happy at all.”
