Samuel Eto'o confirms his retirement

Cameroonian and African football icon Samuel Eto'o retires

Ex-Barcelona, Inter forward Eto'o retires at 38

Former Barcelona, Inter and Chelsea striker Samuel Eto'o has appeared to confirm his retirement on social media after a 22-year career in senior football.

There, he won two Champions Leagues, four LaLiga titles, two Supercopa de Espana and one Copa del Rey.

After losing out in Pep Guardiola's Blaugrana revolution, the Cameroonian joined Inter Milan for the 2010/11 season - and duly became the first player ever to win back-to-back continental trebles.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that after a trophy-laden 22-year playing career, Eto'o has chose to hang up his boots.

He was unable to collect any winners' medals at Anzhi Makhachkala, Chelsea, Everton, Sampdoria, Antalyaspor and Konyaspor, before a move to Qatar SC.

Eto'o also represented Cameroon at four World Cups, ending up with 56 goals in 118 appearances for his country.

In a short Instagram message on Friday night, the Cameroon legend announced that he has chose to call time on his career after leaving Qatar SC earlier this year.

He wrote: "The End". Towards a new challenge.

Eto'o joined Real Madrid as a youth player in 1997 and went on to spend the next three years with Los Blancos but couldn't cement his position in the first team. "Thank you all, big love", he penned.

From then his career really took off and started to blossom.

He scored 130 goals in 199 matches across five seasons, winning three Champions League trophies and scoring in two of the finals.
