Franck Happi is the former Chairman of the Board of Directors of Union Sportive de Douala. He was invited to the show L'Arène this Sunday on Canal2 International, a private channel. The main articulation of this program was the election of Samuel Eto'o as president of the Cameroonian Football Federation.
In the last election in 2018, he was among the candidates, but eventually rallied to the Joseph-Antoine Bell camp. Samuel Eto'o had been a strong supporter for Seidou Mbombo Njoya.
The two men were in the same camp this time, and Happi unreservedly supported the Pichichi.
For the one who is a TV consultant and also promoter of a secondary school, he has total confidence to see Samuel Eto'o at the head of the Cameroonian Football Federation. He believes that "the reputation of Samuel Eto'o will solve 70% of the problems of Cameroonian football," he said during the program L'Arène broadcast this Sunday. According to him, several Cameroonian companies are ready to invest in football thanks to the notoriety of the new leader of the football umbrella body.
During the broadcast, the former boss of the Douala Sports Union revealed that the Eastern region was one of the strongholds strong of the victory of Samuel Eto'o to the presidency of the Fécafoot.
It is a Franck Happi in tears who was seen after the announcement of the victory of his candidate. For him, the election of the former captain of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon is a form of liberation of Cameroonian football.
Some observers are of the opposite opinion since according to the last two leaders of the Fécafoot, Me Dieudonné Happi and Seidou Mbombo Njoya managed the federation only through him. He will have the opportunity to prove to the world that a good player can also be a good president… whatever the institution.
