Eto’o wants Mallorca return

Samuel Eto’o has revealed he could return to play for Real Mallorca when he leaves Chelsea.

Sky Sports reports the Cameroon forward as saying his son has pushed him to return to the island, the place of the child’s birth.

“My son has pressured me to finish (my career) there. My son is from Mallorca,” Eto’o told radio station Cadena Cope.

“I'll always like Barca, but I prefer Mallorca.”

Eto’o spent four years at Mallorca, initially joining on loan from Real Madrid. He netted 69 goals in 165 games for the club before joining Barcelona.

The 32-year-old moved to Inter after leaving Camp Nou and had a spell in Russia with Anzhi Makhachkala before joining Chelsea last summer.

Eto’o revealed that he felt most comfortable in Spain and pines for much about the country.

“I miss everything from there.

“I miss my team-mates, my friends, Barcelona, the weather, the ham, everything...”

Eto’o signed a one-year deal with Chelsea and added he does not know if the contract will be extended when it expires this summer.
