 “Like ETO'O” to better emancipate himself from the most backward family traditions, assume his body and free himself from the injunctions of the mother who orders him to “behave like a woman” for “the girl boy” 



The style of the footballer is above all a state of mind. “The clothes worn should inspire comfort and confidence,” explains young footballer DJAIKA ABEL.
