Eto’o named Antalyaspor caretaker boss
Antalyaspor have appointed Samuel Eto’o as player-manager until the winter break, after sacking former boss Yusuf Simsek.
The former Barcelona and Chelsea man made the switch to the Turkish side earlier this year and scored in his first match in charge at the weekend, against Mersin.
Eto’o was appointed alongside Mehmet Ugurlu, as his assistant, and ended their six-game winless run at the weekend.
The Turkish Super Lig side could extend his role as manager, depending on the results the Cameroonian produces over the next few games.
It was a surprise when Eto’o left Samdoria in Serie A for the newly-promoted Turkish side, but has tasted immediate success, as the league’s top scorer.
