Eto’o under investigation
Eto’o is said to have rigged outcomes in the Cameroonian second division to enable a team, Victoria United, to advance into the top flight.
The allegations began as a result of a leaked recording of a phone call alleged to be between Eto’o and the president of Victoria United, Valentine Nkwain.
“Opopo [Victoria’s nickname] must go up to the first division. This is our goal. This is our federation. Victoria United will go up.”
Victoria were successful in their qualification bid, but both Eto’o and Valentine have denied being the individuals in the said recording.
