Eto'o reply after the World Cup

Cameroon striker Samuel Eto’o has vowed to respond to a series of allegations against him after the World Cup, claiming they are part of a plot to destabilise the team.

Eto’o has been the centre of controversy in recent months. In May he called Jose Mourinho a “puppet” after the Chelsea manager suggested the 33-year-old might in fact be older.


Newspaper reports have also accused the former Barcelona star of an extra-marital affair while he drew condemnation from Cameroon’s press for refusing to accept a symbolic flag as the team departed for Brazil.

“I would like to tell you what I really think but it is more important to talk about the next match and the rest of the World Cup,” Eto’o told reporters here on Tuesday.

“We don’t want to go home after the group phase, even though a lot of people have wanted to destabilise us. People can say what they want. I don’t care.

“Believe me, after the World Cup I will respond to everything,” he said.
