Eto'o dropped by Antalyaspor
Bad news for Samuel Eto'o who's been dropped by his team Antalyaspor following a provocative post on Instagram.
In Turkish alongside a screenshot of his playing record, Eto’o wrote: ‘Reminder – perhaps some people do not feel respect for me because I am black.
Eto’o has been linked with a move to Turkish rivals Besiktas in recent weeks which triggered a backlash from fans and pundits.
A subsequent message from Eto’o clarified that the message was not directed at Antalyaspor chairman Ali Safak Ozturk, but the striker has now been informed he has been omitted from all future squads until the matter is resolved.
"Ozturk is quoted in the Turkish media as saying: ‘No player is above the interests of Antalyaspor. Everyone must know their place."
