Samuel Eto'o Net Worth
Samuel Eto'o net worth and salary: Cameroonian footballer Samuel Eto'o has a net worth of $95 million and annual salary of $26 million. In addition to his net worth, he currently is known for being the most decorated African footballer of all time. In 1997, Samuel Eto'o's career began when he joined the Real Madrid football club. As he was still a minor at this time, he was relegated to training with Real Madrid B. Due to a complicated situation involving Real Madrid B's "no foreign players" policy, Eto'o was bounced around a couple of different football clubs, eventually landing at RCD Mallorca. While at Mallorca, Eto'o began to become a real star, known for his crowd pleasing playing style: "I doubt if there is any other player in the world who would please the fans more at this moment," said Mallorca President Mateo Alemany. From Mallorca, Eto'o moved to Barcelona, where he remained until 2009, when he joined the Internazionale club. Eto'o plays for the Anzhi Makhachkala club in a three year deal. Eto'o, like many football players, has also made a mark in the field of international play, having appeared in various African Cup and World Cup soccer games. Unfortunately, while Eto'o is a popular player, he has also been subject to racist taunts from European soccer fans, at one point walking off the field in protest of them. He's even had to go so far as to keep his children from attending the matches so as not to expose them to racist taunting.
