Eto'o set for Antalyaspor adventure

Samuel Eto’o is set to join newly-promoted Turkish side Antalyaspor from Italy’s Sampdoria.
Antalyaspor finished fifth in the 2014/2015 Turkish second-flight, but won promotion via the play-offs.
Clearly intent on making an impact in the Super Lig, Antalyaspor sent a private jet to Italy with executives to negotiate with Eto’o and then bring him back to Turkey.
“An agreement has been reached in principle with the footballer Samuel Eto’o,” Antalyaspor said in a statement. Financial details have not yet been disclosed.
Turkey will be the latest stop in Eto’o’s eclectic career, which has seen him perform for the likes of Barcelona, Inter Milan and Chelsea. He also played between 2011-13 for Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala. He had signed for Sampdoria only earlier this year.
The coach of the Antalya club in the popular Mediterranean resort, Yusuf Simsek, described the transfer of Eto’o as “very good and very useful”.
