It sounds like nut salesman jobs in Samuel Eto’o's village have been hit by the global economic crisis because he has opted for the lesser option of playing for Chelsea.
Remember those heady days of 2005 when the needle between Chelsea and Barcelona was at its height? Barca star Samuel Eto’o waded in on the row with a quote that would come back to haunt him.
At the time he said: “I’d rather sell groundnuts in my village than to play for a pathetic team like Chelsea.”
Of course, he signed for the “pathetic” Blues yesterday.
