Transfer: Ex-Barcelona star Samuel Eto’o’s son on trial at Benfica

Son of former Barcelona and Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o has been handed a trial with Benfica.

18-year-old Etienne Eto’o was recently released by Spanish second tier outfit Real Oviedo, a setback as he bids to eclipse the legendary Cameroon forward.

Eto’o senior starred for Barcelona, Inter Milan, Chelsea and Everton in his playing days, which ended in 2019 after a spell in Turkey.

Having won the Champions League three times and picked up the African Player of the Year award four times, father Eto’o’s career will be difficult for any future star to beat.

However, that has not stopped young Etienne after the Portuguese giants’ B team offered him a trial period, where he is now training, says the Mirror.
