Video: Samuel Eto’o stars as comic book hero

Published 4 Comments

Cameroon striker Samuel Eto’o appears to be preparing for life outside of football – and is considering a career as a comic book star.

The 31-year-old Anzhi Makhachkala striker has become a football icon after 15 years in the game as a professional, with 111 international appearances also to his name.

Eto'o joined Real Madrid as a teenager in 1997 before making his name at Mallorca. His form led to a Barcelona move, and after five-years at the Nou Camp he swapped Spain for Italy and Inter Milan.

Earning millions at his current mega-rich Russian club, Eto’o has set out to portray his beginnings in the world of football, and has looked to show a different image to the one we have now via the comic strip.

“I wanted to share my experience with young people. Samuel Eto’o wasn’t always the billionaire that many people present him as,” he said in a promo video for the comic.

“Behind all that there was a lot of work. And it’s that work that I want to highlight.”

Whilst the videos and comic are only available in French, they give a sneak peak at what the former Inter Milan hitman looks like on the page.

Check out the videos below, and let us know which footballer you think would make the best comic book hero….
