Samuel Eto’o Pleads Guilty to £3.2m Tax Fraud

Former Cameroon forward Samuel Eto’o has pleaded guilty to a £3.2m tax fraud relating to his image rights while playing for Barcelona.

The four-time African footballer of the year was given a 22-month suspended prison sentence when he appeared at court in Spain.

He must repay the money he owes, along with a fine of £1.55m.

Prosecutors accused Eto’o of failing to declare income from the transfer of image rights between 2006 and 2009.

Eto’o is the latest in a long list of foreign players and managers to have been prosecuted for tax fraud in Spain in recent years, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Jose Mourinho and Neymar.
