Barça legend Samuel Eto'o, off to Russia


While it's not official yet, FC Barcelona legendary striker Samuel Eto'o is about to leave Inter Milan to join Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala - For a hell of a lot of money.

The African Lion would therefore become the best paid footballer in football history, with a wage of 20MILLeu PER SEASON during a 3-year contract. The transfer fee for Inter Milan would also be quite juicy, with a current offer of 30MILLeu.

- While I understand Samuel Eto'o is not a youngster anymore and is clearly looking to cash in ahead of his retirement, I would have loved to see him try his luck in the Premiership. If he wanted money, he could have accepted the offer from Manchester City instead!

SAMUEL ETO'O: GOOD LUCK IN YOUR RUSSIAN ADVENTURE, ENJOY COUNTING MONEY WHILE PLAYING SOME FOOTBALL IN YOUR SPARE TIME!!!!

  1. The best comment ever, Tom!

    And yes, Eto'o could have done the swap deal with Carlitos Tevez and gone to City... a proper club where he'd have had a very decent manager Roberto Mancini, and many awesome co-players such as Kun Aguero, the best English keeper Joe Hart, Yaya Toure, David Silva, Pablo Zabaleta, Vince Kompany, AJ... I don't even know anyone who plays for Anzhi. :(

    You could have been a legend in the Premiership. No-one will rememer you in Russia, but at least you'll be able to smile on your way to the bank. But, wait, you could have done that in Manchester, too!

    I was very disappointed when Eto'o left Barca due to personal differences with Pep. His absence (along with the Icelandic volcano) may have cost us the 2010 UCL. He is now leaving Inter for a final pay day in Russia. Good luck to him. As long as he never joins Madrid, he will always be remembered with affection by all Barca fans.

  13. @Anon,

    I don't usually reply to "anonymous" posters (what's wrong with using your name?) but why would them having signed a Brazilian has-been like Roberto Carlos change my mind? I know the rich Russians collect greedy Brazilians. What else is new.

  14. The rich Russian clubs have been collecting greedy Brazilians for years. (They have, check the facts before objecting, Brazil fans.) The league is still far from interesting. Eto'o sold out. He could have played in the PL, or in LL, a real league, not some playground of oligarchs in Russia.
