Eto'o Suspended for 15 matches Empty Eto'o Suspended for 15 matches

Post by RealGunner Fri Dec 16, 2011 9:02 pm

Cameroon captain Samuel Eto'o has been banned for 15 matches by the Cameroonian Football Federation (Fecafoot) for his role in a player's strike.

The strike followed a row over bonuses after a tournament in Morocco in November and led to the cancellation of a friendly against Algeria.

Eto'o has 14 days to appeal the ban.

Vice-captain Enoh Eyong received a two-match ban, while Tottenham's Benoit Assou-Ekotto was fined $1,980.

As it stands, Eto'o will miss the Indomitable Lions' opening games in qualifying for both the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations and 2014 World Cup.

Cameroon begin their campaign for the 2013 Nations Cup finals in South Africa with the first leg of their first round tie in Guinea Bissau on 29 February. The second leg will be played on 17 June.

In between the Nations Cup games the Cameroon squad start their quest to reach the 2014 World Cup Finals in Brazil with a match on 1 June against DR Congo.

Cameroon are in qualifying Group I with DR Congo, Libya and Togo.

Why "lol" BBC? They don't post reports unless their true.

He earns whatever amount per week and he's rowing over bonuses, of all things? Makes you wonder sometimes.

I'd image some of his teammates actually need the money.

He is captain, if he led this revolt for his teammates sake than good for him.

Yeah as a captain i think leading the revolt is more for his teammates than himself......If he just sat back and did nothing, i doubt he'd be getting any respect from his teammates.

This is strange. This is the guy who does massive charity work inside his country.

Bitching over measly bonuses when he makes a few hundred K a week?

It might not all be about a bonus to Eto'o

Im sure some of his team mates dont earn anywhere near as much as him.

I should have read earlier posts :lol!:

Is he not bitching because other players are being underpaid and left without money they actually need?
