Eto’o’s coaching stint ends
Former Cameroon captain Samuel Eto’o’s stint as interim player-manager at Turkish side Antalyaspor has ended.
He has been replaced by Jose Morais, who was Chelsea’s assistant coach under his Jose Mourinho until his departure in December.
Eto’o took over in early December and won his first two games in charge before suffering two losses and a draw.
Morais, 50, signed a one-and-a-half year contract at a ceremony with Antalyaspor chairman Gultekin Gencer.
The new Antalya coach said: “The first aim is to lift our position in the league. This year the club is celebrating its 50th birthday. We need to present something new to our fans as a gift,” said Morais.
Eto’o, 34, joined the club on a three-year contract in June but took over on 7 December when Yusuf Simsek was sacked.
The former Cameroon captain and African player of the year winner will continue as a player of Antalya.
