AC Milan veteran Gattuso: Eto'o following my lead over Anzhi move

AC Milan veteran Rino Gattuso insists he inspired Samuel Eto'o's move to Anzhi.

The Inter Milan striker's switch was rubberstamped last night.

"Nobody talked about Anzhi in February, but I went to Dagestan for talks, they offered me a ton of money and I did think about it," Gattuso told Milan Channel.

"No-one considered going to Dubai either, but after I went there, Fabio Cannavaro decided he'd accept the proposal.

"I opened the door to others! It was a crazy offer, albeit not quite as much as Eto'o has been given. Mind you, he is 1,000 times better as a player, so it's only right he gets paid more."
