Milla: Eto'o unhappy with authorities

Cameroon legend Roger Milla believes Samuel Eto’o is using his retirement from international duty to send a message to the country’s "rotten'' authorities.

Samuel Eto'o looks to have ended his international career.
Samuel Eto'o looks to have ended his international career.

Eto’o, 32, made a return to international action in 2012 after resolving a series of disputes with Cameroonian football federation (Fecafoot), but he is reported to have told his international team-mates that he would no longer represent the Indomitable Lions after Sunday's World Cup qualifying win over Libya.

There has been no official confirmation of his decision, although national team coach Volker Finke has suggested his time is up.

Milla feels that the Chelsea striker -- a four-time winner of the African Footballer of the Year award -- has taken this stance as a result of his frustration with the way football is governed in his homeland.

"His decision to quit the national team is not a haphazard move," Milla was quoted as saying by the Associated Press. "It is a strong signal he is once again sending to the authorities."

Milla, who starred at the 1990 World Cup, has long been critical of the Fecafoot and was removed as the governing body’s honorary president last year due to his critical comments.
