Ghanaian defender, Samuel Inkoom has spoken on how his dying career got saved by Cameroonian retired professional footballer, Samuel Eto’o.
Inkoom said he was playing at Boavista at the time and was struggling for playtime only for Eto to reach him on phone that he needs him to play in his team, Antalyaspor.
”He’s such an amazing guy. I was in Boavista, Portugal at that time and I received a call from [Eto’o] and he said ‘hey listen, I want you in my team’. I said if you are there and Eto’o calls you that he needs you then you need to know that you have something that is amazing,” the 2009 FIFA World Cup winner told Joy Sports.
”He [Eto’o] spoke to the Antalyaspor and they talked about the personal terms, the transfer fee and everything. At the end of the day, it was a great feeling to play with him. He is a living legend and I was so happy to play with him.”
Inkoom had a successful six-month spell where he made 14 appearances in the 2015/2016 season.
