It’s no surprise that the man to have won a record four African Player of the Year trophies is the continent’s richest player. Eto’o was in fact once the highest paid player in the world during his spell with Anzhi Makhachkala bringing in €20 million ($25 million) a year after taxes. In 2015, Goal.com put his net worth at €87 Million ($95 million). If not of his extravagant lifestyle and his donations to several charity organizations, his net worth could have been much more. This net worth is the highest ever for an African footballer. The Cameroonian striker has played for some of Europe’s biggest clubs including Real Madrid, Barcelona, Inter Milan and current club Chelsea. His goal-scoring prowess has seen him not only rewarded with mega wages but huge sponsorship deals, however the player also gives a lot of money to charity, much like Didier Drogba, and has set up the Samuel Eto’o Foundation in his home country and other African countries. Eto’0 married to Ivorian, Georgette and has fours children.
