Samuel Eto’o hospitalised after car crash in Cameroon

BARCELONA and Cameroon legend Samuel Eto’o is said to be in stable condition in hospital after he was involved in a horror car accident, according to reports.

The striker was said to have been driving home from a wedding in his country Cameroon when his car was hit by a bus on Sunday morning.

Eto’o, 39, suffered a head injury and was immediately taken to hospital for treatment.

However, it is suggested the former Chelsea man is recovering well under close attention from doctors.

Cameroonian journalist Martin Camus tweeted a picture of Eto’o’s apparent destroyed motor alongside the caption: “The crushed car Samuel Eto’o was in.

“I can confirm that he is fine, we spoke again. Doctors taking care of additional examinations.”

Both the BBC News Pidgin and Goal reported on the crash and while there has been no official word from Eto’o, the BBC have quoted a close relation.

The Sun reports that the picture shows Eto’o’s car smashed from the front and was perhaps lucky to escape without further injuries.

Eto’o spent five years with Barcelona before leaving for Inter Milan in 2009 where he was part of Jose Mourinho’s treble-winning side.

He also enjoyed a stint in the Premier League with Chelsea and Everton while winning 118 caps for his country.

Eto’o won 11 major pieces of club silverware in his career including three Champions League titles.
