The medal awarded to him is also makes him an honorary member of the Turkish Veterans Association. A beautiful distinction that arrives only days, after his tripled at the Super Lig.
Before the entire Antalyaspor team and its leaders, the representatives of the Turkish Veterans’ Association were very happy to come and meet one of the most famous African soccer players to decorate him.
With a big smile, Samuel Eto’o did not hide his joy to receive this beautiful distinction as usual! This is the second recognition for the former pichichi. This is proof that Samuel Eto’o continues to arouse the love and sympathy of the populations of Antalyaspor, especially through the quality of his game. These populations, through the association of veterans, have signified all this love through this medal. The son of Douala is undoubtedly very happy to have been designated honorary citizen of the city of Antalya, and honorary member of the association of Turkish Veterans.
