Samuel Eto’o aspires to become a football coach in the future.
It’s no secret anyone. The former Indomitable Lion’s captain would like to become a coach. To achieve this, Samuel Eto’o intends to continue his studies and become a coach of a great European club, after a beautiful
and rich football career.
The former Cameroonian international said he would also like to lead the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon. A dream that could well come true since he knows this national team he has known for at least two decades.
Philippe Doucet, the Canal + Horizon consultant who knows Eto’o well, expressed doubts about the ability of the former Pichichi of the Spanish Liga to realize this dream:
“Very, very long, he talked about being a coach. Eto’o did a lot of training in Cameroon, Gabon, Barça where he had brought many Cameroonians to Masia. So he has that zeel. Now will he get to the end? Will he do
it? In fact, being a coach is a daily and permanent commitment.
Today, Samuel Eto’o, he takes care of CAF, FIFA, he likes to take care of many things. Last time I interviewed him at Konyaspor, his office was crammed with business files and stuff. He was still a footballer and you
could tell he was already occupied with all of this.
My concern is, can he be able to forget everything and be only a coach? Being a coach is 100% there is nothing else close by. It is a personal choice and maybe difficult for him, we will see. ”
Samuel Eto’o knows the magnitude of this choice for having already coached for a few months in Antalyaspor. For this, he does not intend to give up his dream of becoming a coach.
But for Philippe Doucet, it will be difficult for the former player of the indomitable lions of Cameroon to succeed in this project because of his commitments in business at CAF and FIFA.
