Samuel Eto’o joins Turkish side Konyaspor from rivals Antalyaspor

Samuel Eto’o will continue his career in Turkey, moving from Antalyaspor to rivals Konyaspor

Former Cameroon striker Samuel Eto’o has joined struggling Turkish top-flight side Konyaspor from rivals Antalyaspor on a two-and-a-half year deal.

The 38-year-old – who spent two-and-a-half years on the Mediterranean coast after switching from Sampdoria in July 2015 – mutually terminated his contract with Antalyaspor to seal the move.

The four-time African footballer of the year winner scored 44 goals in 77 appearances for Antalyaspor, where he had five months left on his contract.

“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,” an Antalyaspor statement said.
