Samuel Eto'o: I immediately fell in love with Everton

Samuel Eto'o says he treasures his time with Everton.

The Cameroon great only spent six months with the Blues.

But he told the club's website: “Honestly, signing for Everton was one of the best decisions I've ever taken.

“I had other offers, I spoke with Liverpool and other teams had been talking with me.

“But when I spoke with the Everton manager [Roberto Martinez], everything changed, and I didn't look at any of the other offers I had.

“When I met him, I immediately fell in love with Everton. I was excited by his plans for the club and his ideas on the game... that is what took me to Everton."
