Cameroonian striker, Samuel Eto’o has been signed on by Chelsea on a free transfer deal from his Russian club, Anzhi Makhachkala. Eto’o (32) is joining the Premier League team on a one-year-deal.
Meanwhile Eto’o is very delighted with the move. “It wasn’t a hard decision. I saw the qualities Chelsea have, and I was very happy with Jose Mourinho before, so when the opportunity came, I was very happy to take it. I am very happy to be here but also anxious because I want to get playing as soon as possible,” the player said in an interview
