Cameroon legend and FECAFOOT President Samuel Eto’o has rejected the salary accorded to him as President of the Cameroon Football Federation.
The two-time AFCON winner has instead increased the remuneration package for the players in the men and women leagues.
He further warned club presidents to pay salaries of local football players promptly, or else he will pay them and deduct from clubs.
Eto’o said “The salaries of home-based players are already known. Any club president that does not pay players will no longer receive subsidies.I’m giving the players the right to press charges against clubs that don’t pay them and FECAFOOT will pay them directly from the subsidies that the clubs in question had to benefit from.
I’ve come to put things in order. I don’t speak; I act. The money I invest in Cameroon football during my tenure must have a convincing outcome”.
The 41-year-old’s promise not to receive salaries as President was fulfilled as such wages were diverted towards player wellbeing. 
The Cameroon icon advocated for high wages for players in both the men’s and women’s league which started over the weekend.
