Title: King Samuel Eto?o Mobbed As He Joins Konyaspor
Post by: cooljoe on February 01, 2018, 06:19:54 AM
Samuel Eto?o has joined the 12th club of his professional career after signing for Konyaspor from rivals Antalyaspor on a two-and-a-half year contract.

The experienced 36-year-old striker, who arrived in Turkey from Sampdoria in 2015, was able to seal yet another move after mutually terminating his Antalyaspor deal.

The former Cameroon international?s arrival was announced by his new club with a Game of Thrones-themed video on Twitter.

The struggling Turkish top-flight side used the theme song and graphics from the popular television show ? and looked back at his career.

Real Madrid, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Chelsea and Everton were the teams which were depicted alongside their team logo and stadium, before ending at his new club.

The striker was mobbed by his new supporters during a well-attended unveiling at the club?s Konya City Stadium on Wednesday.

He donned the club?s shirt and proudly displayed the Cameroon flag, with plenty of support cheering him on.

Eto?o, a four-time African footballer of the year winner, joins the struggling Turkish top-flight side having netted 44 goals in 77 appearances for his former side.

Antalyaspor confirmed his departure in a statement on Tuesday, and the former Chelsea forward didn?t waste any time finding a new club.

The statement said: ?We have parted ways with our captain Samuel Eto?o by mutual consent. The club thank him for his contribution and wish him success for the future.?

Konyaspor has on its players list a Nigerian player Patrick Eze who is currently on loan to Denizlispor until 30 June 2018. Eze made seven appearances for the club scoring two goals before heading on loan to Denizlispor.
