|Samuel Eto'o Wins Golden Foot Award by lokobyforch(m): 1:09pm On Sep 22, 2015|
Former FC Barcelona and Cameroon forward Samuel Eto’o has been awarded the 2015 Golden Foot at a gala in Monaco.
The 34-year-old, who has starred with five goals in his first five games Antalyaspor in Turkey, won the prize awarded to active players above the age of 28 for their contributions both on and off the field.
On his Twitter account, @setoo9, he said: “Happy to be honored! GOLDEN FOOT 2015”
The retired Cameroon captain joined an illustrious list of former winners and followed last year’s winner Andres Iniesta.
Eto’o is only the second African to win the Golden Foot award after Didier Drogba won it in 2013.
Previous winners are Iniesta (2014), Drogba (2013), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (2012), Ryan Giggs (2011), Francesco Totti (2010), Ronaldinho (2009), Roberto Carlos (2008), Alessandro Del Piero (2007), Ronaldo de Lima (2006), Andriy Shevchenko (2005), Pavel Nedved (2004) and Roberto Baggio (2003).
Eto’o is currently playing as a striker for Turkish club Antalyaspor.
Players such as David Trezeguet, Gheorghe Hagi, Daniel Passarella and Rinat Dasaev were also inducted into the Golden Foot Hall of Fame on Monday evening.
