Members of the Committee were officially installed last Friday in Yaounde by the President of the Cameroon Football Federation, Samuel Eto’o
No time to waste for General Pierre Semengue and members of the Transitional Technical Committee tasked to managed and organize professional football in Cameroon.
They were challenged to live up to the huge task that awaits them as they were installed last Friday, February 25 in Yaounde by the President of the Cameroon Football Federation, Samuel Eto’o.
Installing General Pierre Semengue and other members into their functions, Samuel Eto’o thanked them for accepting to lend their experience for the growth of football in Cameroon.
He called on club presidents who are the main investors to accompany the Transitional Technical Committee to accomplish its mission in order to get Cameroon football to higher heights.
“I am very confident General Pierre Semengue (and his team) will organize one of the best football championships that Cameroon has ever seen. We need to set the bar higher and it is our duty to write our own history,” Samuel Eto’o said.
On his part, General Pierre Semengue thanked the FECAFOOT executive for the confidence placed on him to lead the committee.
“I completely accept to accompany Samuel Eto’o through this very important task. When he consulted me to lead the committee, I could not turn it down because we needed to move away from the impasse we have been facing for the past three years,” General Pierre Semengue said.
Before Friday’s installation, General Pierre Semengue and Samuel Eto’o met on Thursday morning to iron out a few differences paving the way for the new team to get to work.
The eight-man committee will now start working today to get all in order ahead of March 12, projected as the start date for the new football season.
