Cameroonian forward Samuel Eto’o has placed a bet on his Turkish Super Lig side, Antalyaspor. The former Barcelona striker has bet €100,000 with a fan telling him despite the team’s poor form, they would make a top 10 finish to the current season.
Antalyaspor is rooted to the bottom of the league after failing to win a single game in the seven league this season. The fans have become pessimistic about the team’s ability to turn things around after they saw the team throw away a valuable one goal lead in stoppage time.
After the match, Eto’o spoke to the fans, through an interpreter, and promised that the team would be back to winning ways in their next games.
“We will finish in the top 10 of the Super Lig, I stand by what I said and my promise.
“Believe me, I will give you €100,000 if we don’t finish in the top 10,” he said.
Eto’o then took the name and number of the lucky fan to assure him the promise was real.
