Newly elected Cameroonian Football Federation (FECAFOOT) president Samuel Eto’o punished staff of the football body who turned up late to work.
According to Sport News Africa, Eto’o was said to have sacked a security guard on Tuesday morning as well as left late comers stranded at the entrance of FECAFOOT’s headquarters in Tsinga, Yaounde.
It was reported Eto’o arrived early (6:45 GMT) at the headquarters on Tuesday and ordered the security guard to close the gate at 7:00 GMT. And so not to let in latecomers.
Thus, several employees of the federation who arrived after 8:00 am, remained blocked in front of the entrance before receiving the order to return home.
It would be recalled that on Monday, during his contact tour with his new staff, he had indicated his expectations to staff and his desire to see things change.
He was announced as the federation’s new president on Saturday.
The four-time African Player of the Year’s first major assignment would be a successful hosting of the 2021 AFCON in Cameroon.
