Russian Billionaire makes Cameroon’s Samuel Eto’o the World’s highest paid athlete

August 24, 2011 by  

It is good to be Cameroonian soccer star, Samuel Eto’o these days. Russian Billionaire, Oligarch Suleyman Kerimov will be making Eto’o the highest paid footballer and athlete in the world with a payout of €20 million per season over the next three years. All the 30-year-old has to do is pass a medical and play with Brazilian legend Roberto Carlos for small-club-with-big-ambitions Anzhi Makhachkala in the Russian province of Dagestan. His former club won’t be hurting too badly either … financially that is.

Inter Millan will be selling the Cameroonian player to the Russian club for $52 million.

    Samuel Eto’o no doubt has been the world’s best striker since he started playing for FC BARCELONA. iF NOT FOR THE FACT THT HE IS BLACK, he would have been crowned world best player long time ago. Not withstanding he remains all time best striker in the world. To my opinion he deserves the richest payed atlethe buthe is still young and have potentials that he should have used in the Premier League before vieing for money. Anyway he is my star.
