Ghana captain John Mensah voted for Cameroon captain Samuel Eto’o in the Fifa Ballon d’Or polls which Lionel Messi won on Monday night (Jan 9, 2012).  
 
The Ballon d’Or is determined by votes of national team captains, national football coach and media representatives from across the world and while Messi was the overwhelming winner, there were still those unconvinced by his status as the undisputed master of the world game.
 
Ghana captain John Mensah was one of them. Mensah voted for Cameroon captain Samuel Eto’o as the best player in the world ahead of Lionel Messi and his Barcelona team mate Ineasta.
 
Ghana coach Goran Stevanovic picked Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Andreas Ineasta in that order while Ghana media representative and KickOffGhana.com editor Michael Oti Adjei voted for Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Xavi Henandez.

Samuel Eto'o 15 Match Ban Reduced To Eight Months

YAOUNDE (Reuters) - Cameroon's Samuel Eto'o has had a 15-match ban reduced to eight months, meaning the former African Footballer of the Year will miss just four competitive matches before August.
 
The decision was taken in the early hours of Saturday following a lengthy meeting of the Cameroon Football Federation, who had been asked to reconsider the controversial sanction by Cameroon President Paul Biya, officials told Reuters.
 
Eto'o was punished for leading a strike in November when the Cameroon team refused to play a friendly in Algeria because they had not been paid promised bonuses.
 
The teams played two friendlies in three days in Morocco but then refused to travel to Algeria in protest at not receiving the funds.
 
Eto'o's punishment had been widely condemned in Cameroon, where the former Barcelona and Inter Milan striker enjoys widespread popularity because of his performances at both club level and with the Indomitable Lions.
 
Cameroon's federation has since agreed to pay $500,000 to the Algerian federation in damages after the game, for which more than 40,000 tickets were sold, had to be called off.
 
Vice captain Enoh Eyong also had his ban reduced and he will miss just one game when Cameroon begin their bid to qualify for the 2013 African Nations Cup finals in February.
 
A $2,000 fine on Tottenham Hotspur defender Benoit Assou-Ekotto for failing to show up for the two matches in Morocco was rescinded.

Cameroonian soccer star Samuel Eto'o has launched his own mobile phone network, Set'Mobile, in Cameroon. This year Eto'o was transferred to Russian club Anzhi, reportedly pay $35 million to Inter Milan for the transfer of Eto'o, and pay the Cameroon international nearly $30 million per season in salary, making Eto'o the highest paid footballer (Soccer) in the World.

The company that was recently registered in the country was launched on Thursday in the economic capital Douala. 

Set'Mobile becomes the third mobile network after Orange and MTN. The mobile network was launched in the presence of the Indomitable Lions captain.
 
Set'Mobile, which bears the initials of Eto'o's name, hopes to be a major player in the mobile telecoms sector.
 
The ceremony was attended by a cross-section of business personalities and regulators, and also attracted fans.
 
The mobile network also hopes to impact on the socio-economic development of Cameroon.
 
With a capital base of 100 million CFA, the company has a general manager and associate partner Charles Gueret, who hopes to make the company very accessible to the population and make an impact in the market.
 
The general manager said Set'Mobile will drop the cost of calls, while offering services such as calls, sms and internet access.
 
Prior to launching his own network, Eto'o had been the ambassador of one of the mobile operators, Orange.
 
It is believed that Eto'o's popularity in the country will help attract customers to Set'Mobile, especially youths.

Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel dad's abductors wanted $4 billion: police

Tags: John Obi Mikel Nigeria News Sport News Western Africa News kidnappers footballers
JOS, Nigeria (Reuters) - The kidnappers who abducted Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel's father in Nigeria demanded a ransom of $4 billion, the local police commissioner said on Tuesday.
 
Michael Obi was released by his abductors on Monday and police said two Nigerian military officers were part of the group who took him on August 12.
 
"(The kidnappers) asked him to give them $4 billion which they called chicken change to Mikel Obi and his club Chelsea," police state commissioner Emmanuel Dipe Ayeni told reporters in Jos, capital of central Nigeria's Plateau state.
 
He did not say whether any ransom was paid.
 
Mikel earns $5.8 million a year and is the seventh highest-paid African footballer in Europe, according to Forbes magazine.
 
The Nigeria midfielder played for Chelsea in a 0-0 Premier League draw at Stoke City the day after learning of the kidnapping and made public appeals for his dad's safe return. His management company said at the time a "sizeable" ransom had been demanded.
 
It was not the first time a relative of a Premier League player was abducted in Nigeria, where most people live on less than $2 a day, after former Everton defender Joseph Yobo's brother was kidnapped in 2008.
 
Kidnapping of oil workers in the southern Niger Delta has been relatively common in the past but abductions have begun spreading further north.

Ghana denies using Juju against Dream Team V

Tags: Ghana News Sport News Soccer Western African News Ghana Sports Football Gossip Voodoo Rumors
As Nigerians look for ways to ease their pain following the U-23 Eagles exist from the All Africa Games in billed to take place in Maputo, Mozambique in September, spokesman of Ghana Football Association, GFA, Randy Abbey, has revealed that the GFA did not use charms (juju) as claimed by Nigerian officials.

Speaking with Saturday Vanguard Sports in an exclusive interview, Abbey stressed that Nigerians should not lay claim to charms as the reason for their loss but an issue of misinterpretation and incompetence.
 
“First of all, what happened was very very embarrassing to say. The thing is that somebody had eaten food in a take-way pack and left it in one of the lockers presumably the last time the stadium was used, and the cleaners in the stadium did not do work well enough by cleaning it, so, it attracted fungi. That was what the Nigerian team saw and was opposed to.
 
“It is just an issue of  negligence in relation to who was supposed to clean the place and that of the stadium manager most especially for the fact that it is an international match.
 
“The most important thing is that, when the Nigerian team drew the attention of the match commissioner, the sports authority opened a third dressing room but the Nigerians refused. They insisted that they would use the corridor instead of the locker room that was clean.
 
“It was embarrassing for us as a country to make such kind of mistake. For me, I do not believe in charms (juju) to play football because if it works, all of us should know the country that would be winning the World Cup by now. I will find it a bit outrageous that people in this modern world would want to blame charms (juju) for their defeat,” Abbey revealed.
 
He reiterated his joy on the Black Meteors victory, “we are happy that we won. We expected the victory more so as we lost out in the Olympics. The All Africa Games was the only competition left for us. We are therefore excited to qualify ahead of Nigeria, knowing full well our rivalry in football,” he added.
