Everton striker Samuel Eto’o has made it his mission to end the Premier League club’s two-decade trophy drought this season, and has targeted the Europa League as the Toffees’ potential source of glory.
The Cameroon striker signed for the Goodison Park outfit on a free transfer in the summer, and after tasting considerable success during his spells at Barcelona and Inter Milan, he is determined to see off the twilight days of his playing career by lifting a trophy in the blue of Everton.
“My goal is clear,” he said when speaking to the Liverpool Echo.
“I came here to help this club win things and the Europa League is a big one. I have never won it.
“The fans here are incredible – 7,000 at least went to Lille. They followed us to Russia. The only thing I want to say to them is that I will always give them the best of myself. I will do everything to get results and give them pride.”
Roberto Martinez’s side are currently top of their Europa League group with one win and two draws, and Eto’o will be hoping that he can help fire the club to the final in Warsaw next May.
