Former legendary footballer Samuel Eto’o goes back to school
Retired Cameroonian legend footballer Samuel Eto’o, has set his sights on education.
Eto’o is said to be planning to join Harvard Private University to study management to acquire the necessary intellectual skills to help him face entrepreneurial life.
According to a report by The Zambian Observer, the former No. Nine of the Cameroon Indomitable Lions said he will resume studies in January 2020.
“When you are a footballer, you pay people to take care of yours. But when it is up to you to manage them, and you want to develop them, you need to acquire new skills,” Eto’o said.
“So I will go back to school to learn business management. In January, I will join Harvard University, which has kindly admitted me to specialized training,” he added.
The legend Eto’o has probably understood that being a footballer only requires physical and technical strength, but managing a company requires intellectual and moral strength.
“It will not be easy, but it is a great challenge and it will open other doors for me,” he said
Already active in sports betting, one wonders which entrepreneurial seed Eto’o plans to sprout in the next few years after his studies at Harvard.
