“I wanted to share my experience with young people. Samuel Eto’o wasn’t always the billionaire that many people present him as. Behind all that there was a lot of work. And it’s that work that I want to highlight.” – Samuel Eto’o.

The Cameroonian superstar, now 32, appears to thinking after football after the completion his new semi-autobiographical comic book “Eto’o Fils: nacimiento de un campeón” (Eto’o’s son: Birth of a champion).
