The unfolding of events regarding Eto’o’s age is getting more twisted after the ex-girlfriend and mother of Eto’o’s daughter (Annie), Anna Barranca said the Cameroonian international is 39 years old.
Barranca’s allegation is coming a day after Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho said Eto’o was probably older than 32.
‘I think Samuel is not 35 he is more 39”. Barranca tells The Sun.“Samuel was born in 1974 and so that makes him 39 now”.
According to her, she was informed of the striker’s true age by a friend who grew up with Eto’o in Cameroon, West Africa.
The Italian hairdresser, Ms Barranca, 43, is the mother of Eto’o’s child Annie. Samuel Eto’o is yet to comment in relation to all that is going on about his real age.
Many wonder why she is talking now and are suspicious that she may have a hidden agenda.
Observers are quick to point that there has been so much talk around the pichichi who should be allowed to prepare for the World Cup in serenity.
