Samuel Eto’o joins Antalyaspor rivals Konyaspor

Turkish Super Lig side Konyaspor have secured the signing of former Cameroon striker Samuel Eto’o from direct rivals Antalyaspor.

The 36-year-old scored 44 league goals in his two-and-a-half year spell at Antalyaspor.

He will be presented by Konyaspor at a signing ceremony on Wednesday.

The former Barcelona star landed at Konya Airport late on Tuesday and was welcomed by a large group of fans.

Eto’o’s capture will boost Konyaspor’s battle against relegation, with his new side second-bottom in the Süper Lig table, just one place behind Antalyaspor.
