ETO’O: I MIGHT JUST COME BACK WITH LIONEL MESSI
Cameroonian football star Samuel Eto'o who was in the country last week admitted falling in love with Kenya's wilderness and promised to bring his "best friend” Lionel Messi and other players to Kenya next year.
“Thanks for welcoming me to your family. It is a very beautiful region and I enjoyed my stay here,” the French-speaking player told hundreds of ecstatic football fans through a translator.
Sources whispered to Hot Secrets said it cost the Zeitz Foundation millions to bring Eto’o to Kenya.
Zeitz also brought Jamaican sprinter Usain ‘Boit’ Bolt to Kenya last year.
The Inter Milan striker was staying at the 50,000-acre Segera Ranch which is owned by Jochen Zeitz, CEO and chairman of the German-based sportswear manufacturer Puma AG.
Anyho, Eto’o was guarded by at least five policemen and army officers during his public appearances in Nanyuki. His security easily dwarfed that of three ambassadors present including the head of United Nations In Africa Achim Steiner.
