PAY DISPUTE: Eto’o vows to expose Sampdoria


Former Sampdoria striker, Samuel Eto’o, has announced that he plans to hold a press conference where he will lift the lid on his uncomfortable time at the club.

The Cameroonian, who signed for the Genoa-based outfit in January 2015 on a two-and-a-half year deal, however, would depart in a matter of months later to accept an offer
with Turkish club, Antalyaspor. With 16 goals to his name in this season’s Superliga and his Blucerchiati stint seemingly behind him, the 35-year-old announced that he had some unpleasant news for ll Doria.

“There is an awkward situation between me and the club,” he was quoted as stating in a phone call made to Il Secolo XIX.

“I want to make it clear that I was always a gentleman with Sampdoria and was treated as such. However, there is now a serious problem, which I have waited nine months to be resolved and I have lost my patience. I’m not just talking about the economic side; there were other parts of the deal (that weren’t met),” he added. In response to their alleged failure to fulfil Eto’o’s contract, club lawyer, Antonio Romei, denied any wrongdoing. “The contract was perfectly resolved,” he was reported as saying by Mediaset Premium.

“I have all the paperwork. If anything, Sampdoria lost out on €100,000 when they paid Everton to have him arrive six months early. I don’t know why he is saying these things. He was the one who was in a hurry to leave and go to Turkey,” he said.
