And then, “A French player, English, Belgian or Spanish will always be more expensive than an African player, it’s a reality…”
The question is to know whether the condition of not being include in the AFCON is in the stipulation of Samuel Eto’o ( the most paid in the world) for his transfer to Anzi.
Despite this, the left side of the uncontrollable Lions, who could evolve with the Blues ( French team) said he did not regret his choice to be an international of Cameroun.
