Cameroonian football legend, Samuel Eto’o, has set his sights on conquering higher education after recent retirement from football.
Eto’o is said to have been admitted into Ivy-League Harvard University in the United States to study management – to acquire the necessary intellectual skills to help him face entrepreneurial life.
According to a report The Zambian Observer, the former top striker with 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.
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.
