48-year-old Cameroonian football legend, Roger Milla bowed out from the Executive bureau of the Cameroon Football Federation (FECAFOOT) during a meeting held on the 21st of August in Yaounde. He quits because the federation has failed to give an apology for the condemnation he received after criticising Samuel Eto’o before the World Cup in South Africa.
Remember Milla blatantly criticised the Cameroon captain , Samuel Eto’o before the World Cup during an interview accorded by the French media for performing well in his club and not giving his best in the Cameroon national team as well as Paul Le Guen for not doing his job properly. Samuel Eto’o even reacted by threatening not to take part in the World Cup.
FECAFOOT and other sport officials took the side of Eto’o and condemned Roger Milla’s position.
« certaines grandes figures du football camerounais, de nature à perturber la sérénité au¬tour de la sélection »
Discontented with the sport officials, he asked them to apologise during the meeting held at Mont Febe Hotel on Saturday.
Failing to get this apology, the Cameroonian Football legend quit from the Executive committee.
”Thing wey Milla fit seeyam wey ee shidon, Eto’o no fit seeyam even ee climb for tree”
The Indomitable Lions’ demise in South Africa was foreseen by Roger Milla.’
