Eto’o leaves Turkey’s Konyaspor

ISTANBUL

Aug 5, 2018-

Well-travelled former Cameroon international striker Samuel Eto’o is leaving Turkish top flight side Konyaspor after only half a season at the Anatolian team, the club said on Friday. Konyaspor said in a statement that Eto’o, 37, was leaving the club by mutual consent after talks over his future. Images published by the club showed him bidding farewell to his teammates who will be hoping for a better season after narrowly avoiding relegation from the Super Lig in 2017-2018. Eto’o only joined Konyaspor in January this year after leaving its Turkish rivals Antalyaspor, who he had signed up for in 2015 after a short spell in Italy with Sampdoria. The player enjoyed five successful seasons with Barcelona from 2004 to 2009, winning a pair of Cham-pions League and three La Liga titles. (AFP)
