Inter Milan star Eto’o admits Roma move was close

Inter Milan striker Samuel Eto'o has revealed he came close to joining AS Roma.

Appearing on an Italian TV show, Eto'o was asked by a Roma supporting presenter when he will leave Inter and play alongside Francesco Totti.

“I was close to signing for Roma two years ago, then everything vanished. Today I am happy where I am.”

In a series of bizarre questions, Eto'o even had to turn down being offered to the presenter's aunt.

“I am already worried,” he said. “My wife is a real panther.”
