Samuel Eto'o reveals that he has military police to protect him from the Cameroonian Football Federation, whom he believes want to kill him.

Anzhi Makhachkala striker Samuel Eto'o has accused the Cameroonian Football Federation (FCF) of wanting to murder him.

The 31-year-old, who has had a long-running dispute with the governing body, has admitted that he has enlisted the protection of 'gendarmes', or military police.

"The leaders of the FCF want to attack my life, they want to kill me," Eto'o reportedly told Je Wanda magazine. "I live with a group of gendarmes and one sleeping in front of my door. I do this not out of snobbery, but for my own safety."

Eto'o, who is the captain of the Cameroon national team, has been named African player of the year four times during his career.
