Cameroonian striker Samuel Eto'o (right) has played football in Barcelona and Milan, Now he is to ply his trade in the war-torn north Caucasus region of Russia, for a team called Anzhi Makhachkala that finished 11th in last season's Russian Premier League. A reported salary of £18m a year probably swung it.
