Legendary Cameroonian striker and Barcelona forward, Samuel Eto’o, has enrolled in Harvard University in the United States of America to further his studies.
This according to him was as a result of the giving back passion he has for Africa. The retired professional footballer will be studying Business Management at the school beginning in the new year.
He is hopeful that he acquires new skills that will help him contribute towards the development of the African continent.
“I want to help and to make my positive contribution to the transformation of our continent,” Eto’o told French news website Jeune Afrique [via BBC Sport].
Samuel Eto’o is anxious about his stay in Boston.
“But when it’s up to you to manage people, and you want to develop them, you practically need to learn new skills.”
“In January I will start business management studies at Harvard University after they kindly accepted me for specialised training,” he explained.
“I will live in Boston for almost a year for this. It won’t be easy, but it’s a nice challenge and you know I always love to challenge myself.”
