Samuel Eto’o signs for Antalyaspor

The former Cameroon international has had a glittering career, which included scoring over 100 goals for Catalan giants Barcelona, but his time in the game has hit a brick wall in recent seasons.

Eto’o joined Chelsea back in the summer of 2013 when Jose Mourinho took a gamble on him and brought him to Chelsea, which he repaid with nine league goals, including a hat-trick against Manchester United.

However, after his one-year deal finished in West London, the former Real Madrid youngster went and joined Everton – a move which failed to reap the dividends.

Eto’o managed just three league goals in 14 games and so his time there was cut short – joining Italian outfit Sampdoria on a two-and-a-half year deal.

Once again, Eto’o struggled in Italy and he has now decided to go and try his luck in Turkey, with this perhaps seen as an ending to his career.
