Former Cameroon captain Samuel Eto’o has commented on the crisis that is shaking the Confederation of African Football before the elections which should allow his countryman Issa Hayatou to run for another term.

Nigeria Football Federation supremo Amaju Pinnick has been openly campaigning against the re-election of Hayatou, who has been in power since 1988, and is supporting Ahmad Ahmad, the head of Madagascar’s FA to be the new president.

“No institution resists the laws of cycles and change. I just hope that these changes will help African football to evolve, because it is the most important, ” said Eto’o to Jeuneafrique.com.

“The development of CAN has improved infrastructure, and that is important. But the main beneficiaries of these changes must be players, especially those in Africa.

“The Caf is at a certain level of financial income. It is respected, within FIFA for example.”

The Antalyaspor striker added : “But we should bring more freshness to open up other horizons. Without denying what has been done. These changes could prolong and improve what has been accomplished.

“Look at FIFA: the arrival of Gianni Infantino in the presidency has reignited innovation. Trying to do something else at the head of CAF is not a bad idea”.

The elections for the president of CAF will take place on March 16 in Ethiopia.
