Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o has stated that he is extremely happy with his current situation at the club. The Cameroon international scored the first hat-trick of his Chelsea career in the 3-1 win over Manchester United. It has helped Chelsea move 12 points ahead of United in the table, while also maintaining their position close to the top of the table. As a result of this victory, they remain two points behind Arsenal and one point behind Manchester city. Eto’o has been criticised for not delivering in the first few months after his arrival from Anzhi Makhachkala.
However, he appears to be slowly regaining the form that made him one of the best strikers in the world during his time at Barcelona and Inter Milan. The striker has scored 8 goals in 17 appearances in all competitions. This includes match-winning goals against Liverpool and Manchester United. The injury to Fernando Torres during the weekend is likely to make Eto’o the number one striker for the next few weeks. Even though his contract is set to expire in the summer, Eto’o is not worried about this and he is only concentrating on enjoying his football.
Eto’o has also said that it is difficult to compare the English league with the Spanish and Italian leagues, but he is looking to adapt as soon as possible.
“At the moment, we are still in practically all the competitions. If Chelsea are not the best club in the world, then they are one of the best clubs in the world, so I don’t know if we are going to win everything but the season is going well so far. I like playing and when I get the chance to do that I have to help my team-mates. There is a huge difference between English football and the other championships, you almost can’t compare it,” said Eto’o.01.17.14

Even at his 32 years of age Samuel Eto’o has proven what he can offer not only to Chelsea but any club in the world as he scored twice against Schalke 04 in their Champions League encounter and keeps on increasing his total tally.
His performances have attracted the attention of the team from the Major League Soccer’s Toronto FC. Reports are emerging suggesting that Eto’o and Jermain Defoe are in their wish list along with Alessandro Del Piero and Alberto Gilardino all of which have reached a certain age and time in their career.
The former superstar of Barcelona is having an off and on time with Chelsea as he is being rotated by Jose Mourinho and sometimes making substitute appearances while other times he is chosen ahead of Fernando Torres and the rest of the attacking cast of the English club.
Eto’o will become a free agent in May and so will be the perfect chance for Toronto FC to make a move for him. The team is in need of someone to take charge and lead them on their way to win silverware which is why they are in search of a veteran player that can keep the weight of the team on their shoulders.
Tim Leiweke wants to turn Toronto FC into a winning team which is why they have announced their interest in signing a number of players but will be more than pleased on signing at least 1 or 2 of the ones that were mentioned.
Alessandro Del Piero’s contract with Sydney FC ends in 2014 at around the same Eto’o becomes a free agent which means that Toronto FC can make a move both players during the same transfer window.10.25.13
