Breaking: FIFA Receives Report Alleging Threats and Match-Fixing Involving Samuel Eto’o

Cameroonian football legend and current president of the Cameroonian Football Federation, Samuel Eto’o, is reportedly entangled in a scandalous case submitted to FIFA’s Ethics Committee.

As per reports from The Athletic, Eto’o faces serious allegations including match-fixing, dissemination of false information, making threats, inciting violence, and abusing power.

The accusations were brought forth by former Fecafoot vice-president Henry Njalla Quan Junior, who submitted a detailed file to FIFA outlining the alleged wrongdoings.

Among the claims is Eto’o’s alleged involvement in match-fixing, particularly in a match between his academy and Kumba City FC, described as “the most scandalous… in the history of mankind.” Additionally, Eto’o is accused of influencing the promotion of a team owned by a “close associate,” Valentine Nkwain.

The strained relationship between Njalla Quan Junior and Eto’o escalated further, with allegations of threats made by the former football star. A threatening message, reportedly funded by Eto’o, warned Njalla Quan Junior of severe consequences if he opposed Eto’o’s interests.

This incident adds to Eto’o’s history of controversies, including a violent altercation captured on video during the 2022 World Cup and legal issues resulting in a fine and a suspended jail sentence for tax fraud in 2022. Moreover, concerns arise regarding Eto’o’s affiliation with a sports betting company while holding a role with Cameroon, potentially violating FIFA’s ethics code. As investigations unfold, FIFA’s response to these troubling allegations against the former football star remains uncertain.
