Samuel Eto’o who spent most of his professional career days working under the most successful managers has disclosed of his plans to dive into the management field.
During an event in Doha, Eto’o talked of his desires to help his national side lift the World Cup trophy as he noted that it’s not impossible to do this.
Eto’o spent the last days of his footballing career with Qatar SC where he netted 6 goals in just 17 appearances.
The Cameronian also had good relationship with the former Mallorca manager and Atletico Madrid Legend, Late Luis Aragonés as he shared some of the important managerial tips Aragonés handed him.
“To be a coach I have to study. My luck is that as a player I met a wise man who now rests in peace: Luis Aragonés,” Eto said.
“He told me to please listen to the people I knew. It is obvious that the idea of being a coach is in my head. At the moment I am in a period of reflection.”
“Future? I would perhaps like to coach someday, my dream is to help Cameroon win a World Cup. It’s not impossible, you just have to have the right people in place….”.
Eto netted 56 national goal in 118 appearances for Cameroon and is likely to be handed the management duty for his country as he has already tested management when he was an Interim player-manager at Antalyaspor in 2015.
Upon his retirement in September, former manager, Jose Mourinho backed him on the stand that the Cameroonian would be a successful manager if he dives into the management field.
