Former African Player of the year Samuel Eto’o moves to Qatar
Former African Player of the year and Cameroon legend Samuel Eto’o has signed for Qatar Sports Club.
The Qatari top-flight club announced the signing on their Twitter account, saying they would hold a “press conference to present the international star Samuel Eto’o” on Tuesday.
The 37-year-old moves to Qatar after leaving Turkish club Konyaspor by mutual consent earlier this month.
He joins ex-Spain international Xavi and former Netherlands player Wesley Sneijder in the Qatari league.
Eto’o, a four-time African footballer of the year, played with Xavi at Barcelona, and Sneijder at Inter Milan, winning the Champions League with both teams.
He has also played in England – for Chelsea and Everton – and Russia.
