The Cameroon legend has become the latest football star to have received the UAE Golden Visa.
Brazil’s 1994 World Cup hero Bebeto, Chelsea legend Didier Drogba and Juventus’ Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo are among the sporting heroes that have been given the long-term UAE visa by the authorities.
Eto’o, the four-time African player of the year, is the only player in history to win back-to-back European Cups with two different clubs.
Having achieved the treble with Barcelona in the 2008-2009 season, Eto’o repeated the feat one year later at Inter Milan.
Eto’o scored 371 goals at club level before retiring in 2014.
At the international level, the prolific striker scored 56 goals in 118 matches.
