Veto on Eto’o Irons wage demand

Samuel_2011Samuel Eto’o’s wage demands are likely to rule out a move to West Ham United.

ClaretandHugh has been assured that an inquiry has been made about the striker but that wages of £80k a week have been quoted as a starting point.

The story that the Irons were considering a move for the player broke in the national newspapers this morning and despite an Eto’o “pal” being quoted as the source, the story has turned out to be correct.

However, a highly placed Upton Park insider told ClaretandHugh exclusively: “There’s been an approach but his wages are likely to inhibit a move.

“He wants £80k a week and is 33 years old MINIMUM! His record at Chelsea last season wasn’t that great.

“He only scored nine goals last season for a top side and all his goals were at home in games he started in. We’ve inquired but it’s not one to get THAT excited over.”

  1. 9 goals last season, ok not fantastic, how many did our top goal scorer get last season ?
