Eto'o: 'Samp in Champions League!'

Samuel Eto’o is quoted as telling Italian papers he wants to get Sampdoria “into the Champions League.”

The striker is expected to fly in today for his medical and be presented to the fans ahead of Sunday afternoon’s Serie A match with Palermo.

“I can’t really talk before signing the contract,” the Everton man told Secolo XIX newspaper.

“I do want to say I am in great shape, I want to win and above all achieve the objective the President and this city deserve: to get into the Champions League.

“I am feeling great, ready to play and obviously I want to score in order to help Samp achieve their objectives.

“I was very happy in Italy in the past and couldn’t wait to get back there. I chose Samp for their project, for Mihajlovic and for President Ferrero. I didn’t know the President before, but his enthusiasm was contagious.

“I just want to get started. I’ll see all the Sampdoria fans soon.”
