  • The Cameroonian knew that the staff member was a club devotee, so he made him such a present, Samuel's former teammate recalls.
  • Eto'o also gifted the team's defenders Rolex watches when they kept clean sheets against the league's two biggest rivals.

When Samuel Eto'o played at Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala, he once gifted Anzhi staff member a new flat, according to his former teammate Ali Gadzhibekov.

"Everyone knew that this man [the staff member] was devoted to the club and that he was struggling financially, so Samuel made such a present," Ali recalled in 2019.

"There was a moment when Eto'o said that if the defenders kept a clean sheet against Zenit St. Petersburg and CSKA Moscow, he would gift them Rolex watch. And he kept his word," Gadzhibekov added.

Apart from being a generous person, Samuel Eto'o also remained a predatory striker at Anzhi. The Cameroonian found the back of the net 36 times in less than three seasons with the Russian side.
