Sampdoria: We don’t owe Eto’o


Sampdoria has denied accusations by Antalyaspor forward Samuel Eto’o of not being paid.

The club’s lawyer Antonio Romei was responding to after the Cameroonian made the allegation in a press conference earlier today dismissed the striker’s claims.

“The contract was perfectly resolved,” said Romei, as reported by Sport Mediaset. “I have all the paperwork.

“If anything, it’s Sampdoria who lost €100,000 when they paid Everton to have him come in six months early.

“I don’t know why he’s saying these things. He was the one who was in a hurry to leave and go to Turkey.”

However, there’s been no word from Sampdoria President Massimo Ferrero on the issue.

Samuel Eto’o left Sampdoria in the summer for Turkish side Antalyaspor at the summer after an unimpressive season with the Blucerchiati.
