Eto'o hearing postponed


A DISCIPLINARY hearing, which had summoned Cameroonian captain Samuel Eto'o following a monetary row that caused the Cameroon squad to strike, has been pushed back to December 12.

The Cameroon Football Federation (Fecafoot) postponed the committee hearing that had summoned Eto'o - who plays for Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala - to explain his part in the player strike on November 15, which led to the Indomitable Lions’ friendly against Algeria being cancelled.

The 30-year-old former Barcelona and Inter Milan forward, alongside his assistant captain Eyong Enoh, sited club commitments as a reason for not appearing before the committee.

"At the request of the players who wish to be present and defend themselves at the hearing, the disciplinary committee meeting initially billed for November 24, has been postponed to December 12," a statement from Fecafoot said.

The row started when bonuses and appearance fees were not paid after the team played two games against Morocco and Sudan and the players decided not to go to Algeria in protest.

Eto’o, who is the world's best paid footballer, faced the Fecafoot committee earlier this summer after missing a training sessions and for showing indiscipline to then coach Javier Clemente.
