Eto’o and his Russian club side Anzhi Makhachkala. Yesterday they registered their second defeat in as many matches, going down 2-1 to Rubin Karzan. This defeat follows that registered against Liverpool in the Europa league. No amount of hustling from Cameroonian striker and Anzhi captain Samuel Eto’o could change the tide of defeat. While this cannot be the basis for any talk of a crisis, it has certainly tainted the feel – good atmosphere that reigned amongst fans after they went top of the log. This defeat equally means Eto’o and club have been relegated to second place in the league classifications.
