Tags: Samuel Eto’o Sports Cameroon News Didier DrogbaAfrican News Famous Africans Footballers Celebrity
Star Cameroon striker Samuel Eto'o has topped the list of the world's highest-paid footballers, with Spain-based superstars Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo sitting in ninth and 10th placed on the list respectively.

Eto'o is the sport's best paid, according to Spanish newspaper Marca, earning 20 million Euros ($24.6m) per year with his Russian Premier League club FC Anzhi Makhachkala.

Paris St Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic was second, with an annual salary of 14.5 million Euros ($17.8m), followed by Manchester United's Wayne Rooney and Manchester City duo Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero.
 
Argentine playmaker Dario Conca is the surprise inclusion, earning 10.6 million Euros ($13m) from his Chinese Super League club Guangzhou Evergrande to rank eighth above Barcelona's Messi and Real Madrid's Ronaldo.
 
Spain's generous tax rates could be behind the relatively low placings of Messi and Ronaldo on the list, with pair widely regarded as the two best players in world football.

Eto'o refuses to return to "amateurish" Cameroon setup Tags: Samuel Eto’o Sports Cameroon News African News Famous Africans Footballers Celebrity
Samuel Eto'o has rejected the chance to make a comeback for Cameroon, saying the team environment is still plagued by "amateurism and bad management".

The 31-year-old forward was recalled last week for the African Nations Cup final round first leg against Cape Verde Islands on September 8, eight months after he was suspended for having led a player strike over unpaid bonuses.
 
The row caused Cameroon to cancel a friendly in Algeria.
 
"I regret to inform you I've decided not to participate in any game with the national team since the flaws I kept denouncing as a captain have not been solved," Eto'o wrote in a letter to the Cameroon soccer federation published on his website (www. samueletoo-officiel.com).
 
 
 
"The national team environment is still made up of amateurism and bad management which do not suit the requirements for high-level sport," added the four-times African Footballer of the Year who has played for his country more than 100 times.
 
"I am sure all (Indomitable) Lions lovers will understand my move which is only aimed at drawing attention on the necessity to have a more professional management of this team," added former Inter Milan and Barcelona player Eto'o.
 
"This team is an institution which brought a lot to our country and we can still expect a lot from it."
 
Eto'o now plays for wealthy Russian Premier League side Anzhi Makhachkala.
 
The two-legged match between Cameroon and Cape Verde Islands will decide a place at the 2013 finals in South Africa.
 
The return leg is in Yaounde in October.

Will Samuel Eto'o faces jail for tax fraud in Spain?

Samuel Eto'o Faces 5-Years In Spanish Jail Over A €3.5m Tax Fraud Allegation. A Spanish public prosecutor has accused Cameroon striker Samuel Eto'o of conspiring to evade 3.5 million euros ($4.4 million) in taxes owed on income from his image rights when he was playing for Barcelona between 2006-2009.

The former Barca and Inter Milan player, now with Russian Premier League club Anzhi Makhachkala, is accused of four tax offences, each punishable with up to five years in prison and a fine of as much as 21 million euros.
 
The case presented by the prosecutor on June 15 at a Barcelona court, and which was seen on Thursday [June 28], asks a judge to open proceedings against the player before the statute of limitations on one of the alleged offences expires on Saturday.
 
Spain recently launched a drive against tax evasion as it struggles to meet tough European deficit reduction targets that have meant budget cuts for hospitals and schools.
 
Eto'o allegedly created two companies, one in Hungary and another in Spain, and used them to channel income obtained from ceding his image rights to Barca and sportswear maker Puma, the prosecutor said.
 
The Hungarian company paid one of the lowest corporate tax rates in Europe - 10 percent to 19 percent - while the Spanish company paid a reduced corporate tax rate of 30 percent to 35 percent, instead of the 45 percent income tax rate, the charge said.
 
Eto'o also allegedly used the Spanish company to deduct personal expenses, such as payments for his mortgages, furniture and expenses related to his luxury cars, the complaint added.
 
Eto'o and his club could not immediately be reached for comment.
 
The prosecutor also accused Eto'o's former agent, Jose Maria Mesalles, and the manager of the Spanish company, Manuel de Jesus Lastre, of the same tax offences.
 
Eto'o filed a lawsuit against Mesalles at a Barcelona court last year, accusing him of betraying his trust and of embezzling money.

Ghana's Kevin Prince Boateng frolicking with girlfriend Tags: Ghana News Kevin Prince Boateng Celebrity NEws Entertainment Footballer
She’s been accused of distracting him from his football career and from these pictures it’s not difficult to see why. Sports Illustrated model Melissa Satta showed off her enviable figure in Miami yesterday as she frolicked in the ocean with AC Milan boyfriend Kevin-Prince Boateng and he was happy to be the sole focus of her attention.
 
The couple heated things up in the sunshine as they passionately kissed while taking a dip, oblivious to other holidaymakers. Gorgeous 26-year-old Melissa wore a bright striped bikini which struggled to contain her ample curves and showed off her pert bottom.
 
A star tattoo on each of her hips and a larger tattoo on her right shoulder were also visible. Meanwhile Kevin, 25, showcased his impressive collection of body art as he took to the beach in a pair of black shorts. The playful couple appeared to be re-enacting scenes from movie Dirty Dancing at one stage as Kevin lifted Melissa out of the water.
 
The affectionate pair couldn’t keep their eyes or their hands off each other, kissing and cuddling in the water and later Kevin was spotted playing with Melissa’s bikini bottoms.
 
 
Despite becoming an integral part of the AC Milan’s midfield, Boateng missed a number of games during the season due to a succession of minor injury problems.
 
AC Milan fans have been unhappy with the player and his girlfriend after she claimed in January that his injuries were caused by too much sex.
She told Vanity Fair: ‘The reason why he is always injured is because we have sex seven to ten times a week. I hate foreplay, I want to get straight to the point. My favourite position is on top so I can take control.’
 
The couple have been dating since October 2011, one month after Kevin’s divorce from the mother of son Jermaine-Prince was finalized.

Drogba signs with Chinese club - Shanghai Shenhua
Category: African Sports
Tags: Ivory Coast News Football African Sports Didier Drogba Famous Africans Footballer
Chelsea and Ivory Coast idol Didier Drogba on Wednesday sealed a two-and-a-half-year deal with Shanghai Shenhua, becoming the biggest recruit so far to China's ambitious Super League.

The announcement ends months of speculation about the move, in which the striker will become China's best paid player with weekly pay of 200,000 pounds ($314,000), according to reports, and join ex-Chelsea team-mate Nicolas Anelka.
 
"Today I can inform you that I have signed with Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua FC for a two-and-a-half year deal (until the end of 2014)," Drogba, 34, said on his website. "I will fly out to join up with the squad in July."
 
Shanghai Shenhua posted a picture of Drogba wearing the team's blue shirt - similar to Chelsea's - on its website, and confirmed the deal in a brief statement.
 
Alongside Anelka, who joined Shenhua in January, Drogba will form a feared strike-force in the Chinese league, which has shrugged off years of corruption scandals with a spending spree on coaches and players.
 
Reigning champions Guangzhou Evergrande are spearheaded by imported South American talent, and they pulled off a coup by snaring the services of World Cup-winning Italian coach Marcello Lippi in May.
 
Shenhua, bankrolled by colourful video-game tycoon Zhu Jun, are in need of a boost as they currently lie 12th of 16 teams, with just three wins in 13 games this season.
 
 
And Drogba underlined his reputation as one of the English Premiership's most lethal strikers with a match-winning role in last month's Champions League final.
 
The imposing target man said he had received other offers but Shanghai "is the right move for me at this time", adding that he was encouraged by Chelsea's promotional visit to China last year.
 
"I am looking forward to a new challenge and to experiencing a new culture, and I am excited about the new developments in the Chinese Super League," he said.
 
"When Chelsea went to China last year, we had a great time and I met some amazing fans."
 
He added: "I hope to help promote Chinese football around the world and further improve the links between China and Africa."
 
Drogba will hope for a smoother start in Shanghai than Anelka, who was disaffected by management changes after coach Jean Tigana's quickfire sacking in April, and reportedly threatened to quit the club.
 
Fans hailed the move, Shao Chen writing on one of China's popular microblogging sites: "Today is such a good day. Anelka and Drogba, what terrifying strikers! Shenhua are the champions."
 
But others warned that buying big-name players may not help the development of Chinese players, who have repeatedly failed to make an impact on the international stage.
 
Drogba scored 157 goals in 341 appearances since joining Chelsea from Marseille in 2004. At Shenhua, he will work under former Argentine coach Sergio Batista, who joined the club late last month.
 
Last week, two former chiefs of China's football association were jailed for more than 10 years and four ex-internationals also received lengthy terms, in the climax of a major crackdown on football corruption.
