Just a week after Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho secretly declared ; “The problem with Chelsea is I lack a scorer. I have Eto’o but he is 32 years old, maybe 35, who knows?’ , he has come out to clarify that he was only joking . But the drama continues to unfold as somebody has sprouted to say that Mourinho was right to confirm that the Cameroon striker is not 35… because he is in fact 39.
The claim comes from 43-year-old Italian woman called Anna Barranca who had a daughter with Eto’o 11 years ago when he was playing for Mallorca.
She told the Sun: “It is very evident Samuel was older than the age he said he was when he first came to Europe. I think Samuel is not 35 he is more 39. Samuel was born in 1974 and so that makes him 39 now.”
Barranca is not so reliable when it comes to issues about Eto’o. She has sold numerous stories to the press accusing Eto’o of not paying alimony. Eto’o has reacted by laughing off the rumours that have gone rife.
“I am Samuel Eto’o, what can I say?” he told Sky Sports News after Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Galatasaray on Wednesday night.
“If at 36 and 37 I can score three goals at Manchester United it means that I still have some juice and I can even score until I am 50.
“But I really don’t care, what is really important to me is to give my maximum to the team, to help them to win some titles.”
Nigerian star Davido is inarguably one of Africa’s brightest Afro-pop songsters . His new hit dance tune ”Skelewu” is simply phenomenal and getting viral like Azonto. The hit-maker met with ace Cameroonian striker and Chelsea FC new signee Samuel Eto’o during his tour in UK. We keep our fingers crossed for that famous skelewu dance afterEto’o’s first goal with the Blues.
NexDim brings to you an excerpt of their meeting.
Cameroon is currently gearing up to confront Togo in a return-leg World cup qualifier on June 9th in Lomé.The indomitable Lions captain Samuel Eto’o might be absent from the Lome expedition due to an injury he sustained during a Russian cup match between CSKA Moscow and Anzhi. Eto’o missed Cameroon’s 0-0 draw against Ukraine in Kiev on Sunday 2 June. This will be the first official match under Volke Finke. Another absentee might be Assou-Ekotto.
Indomitable Lions” strikerSamuel Eto”orecently admitted to receivingdeath threats. The FC Anji frontman made these statements recently during a
web chat organised by a Cameroonian sister web magazine. The striker went ahead to say that he is now compelled to take his national team jerseys directed from the manufacturers and
also has to go about with gendarme protection even when on national team duty. These declarations and more sparked widespread debate as to whether the player had indeed received death threats or is simply paranoid due to his recent criticism directed at those managing football matters in Cameroon. In an interview yesterday with French radio RMC, he didn”t re-echo the death declarations although he said if he dies, it will be because God has so decided. Watch the video for yourselves and get the entirety of his declarations.
Cameroonian and F.C. Anji forward Samuel Eto’o has garnered another accolade. The striker’s goal during his team’s 5-0 smashing of Dutch side AZ Alkmaar has been voted best goal of the first part of the season by club fans. The Indomitable Lion’s goal beat goals from other F.C. Anji players like Mbark Boussoufa, Rasim Tagirbekov and Serder Serderov. What a great start to the second part of the season.
His ferry tale story gets a new chapter with each passing day and his super star status is confirmed. Samuel Eto”o the super star and the subject of praise songs is now a comic book hero. The 49 page comic strip was presented yesterday December 26 , 2012 and details the life of the Cameroonian wonder kid. Co-authored by the hero himself and Joelle Esso, the series is titled “Eto”0 Fils : Birth of a champion” (our translation) and is an attempt by the F.C. Anji frontman to tell the story of his rise from humble beginnings to royal settings. When we know that getting one”s own comic book is but one of the trappings of stardom,
we can begin to wonder what next. Is it a biopic? Let”s just watch and see.
As the season pulls to a close, fans of Samuel Eto”o”s Russian side F.C. Anji have been called to vote for the best club goal of the season. Two of the nine goals that have been preselected belong to Indomitable Lion and F.C. Anji captain Samuel Eto”o. The first goal is one he scored against Dutch side AZ Alkmaar and the second is during their 5 – 2 spanking of Krasnodar. If you
want to see the Cameroonian striker come out on top, go to http://www.fc-anji.ru/news/en/fc_anji_news/anji_best_goals_of_season_181212/and vote. Ivoirian striker Mbark Boussoufa also has two goals nominated.
Even in death, Theophile Abegacontinues to unite and reconcile as he often did while alive. The funeral ceremony of the fallen Lion brought together a plethora of personalities amongst which FC Anzhi “s Samuel Eto”o and Canon”s Wome Nlend, both of whom, the press alleges, haven”t been the best of friends in recent times. The
two players were amongst the host of persons who came to pay their last respect to a prolific Indomitable Lion. The late Theophile Abega was one of those players who made Cameroon popular on the world scene with his performances. He was also one of the first Cameroonians to win the African Nations” Cup and prestigious African Player of the Year award, way back in 1984. Even after leaving the football pitch, he stayed active on the sidelines as a strong supporter of his beloved Canon of Yaounde and constantly came into the Lions” den to quell any disharmonious roars. One of his last pacification outings was before the return leg against Cape – Verde in Yaounde. It is hoped that Eto”o and Wome”s meeting at the funeral will be an indication of a renewed entente cordial between them henceforth.
taincy is surely doing Samuel Eto”o much unexpected good. The Cameroonian striker was voted man of the match by club fans in the Caucasian derby that pitted Anzhi Makhachkala against Terek Grosny over the weekend. The player was instrumental in the first two goals. In the second goal most especially, he pressed the opponent hard and collected the ball which he gave to a teammate for a simple tap-in. This performance and victory have enabled Eto”o and his team return to winning ways after last week”s defeat. It equally enables them remain within touching distance of the top spot currently occupied by CSKA Moscow.
