Soccer star Samuel Eto’o spends his exorbitant pay and free time living the life of a boss.
Cameroonian soccer star and former Inter Milan and Barcelona FC standout Samuel Eto'o was spotted cruising around the streets of Paris in his Bugatti Veyron. The Anzhi Makhachkala star is the best paid soccer player of African descent.
According to the BBC, Russian team Anzhi Makhachkala paid Inter Milan €21 million (about $27,800,000) for his contract and they are paying him a yearly salary of €20 million (roughly $26.5 million) after tax per season. This makes him a higher earner than Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo. He has found a terrific hobby to spend all that cash, as in addition to owning this Bugatti Veyron he also owns a Gemballa Mirage GT and Stallone Mansory. The super-spending Russian club, recently bought by billionaire oil tycoon Suleiman Kerimov, has seen a solid return on their investment, as Eto'o has already scored 8 goals in 14 appearances this season.
