Ivory Coast football legends Didier Drogba and Yaya Toure have both congratulated Samuel Eto'o on being elected as the new president of the Cameroon Football Federation (Fecafoot), Soccerladuma reports.

The Cameroon football legend had an illustrious playing career and will now be at the helms of affairs in football administration for his country.

AFCON title among most expensive trophies in world football
Meanwhile, winning titles is one of the primary objectives of a footballer or any football team, and some high-profile tournaments come with the biggest titles.
A look at the most expensive trophies in the world shows that the Africa Cup of Nations trophy is also very expensive as it is worth €127,000 (about N60million).
The real value of the Africa Cup of Nations trophy is a fair reflection of how important a title it is and is more than twice as expensive as the Serie A trophy which is right behind it in terms of value.
