He was in the headlines was to do with a match-fixing scandal in Cameroon.

Currently, the four-time African footballer of the year is facing a legal case in Italy after his estranged daughter accused him of not paying maintenance. Annie, 21, was born from his affair with Anna Maria Barranca in 2002, in Padova in Italy.

But Eto’o was never part of her life. In 2015, a judge recognised Annie as his daughter following a DNA test, and Eto’o agreed to pay Barranca €10k in child maintenance. In exchange, they would drop the legal case against him.

A new report has it that Annie has submitted a legal complaint over unpaid child maintenance, alleging that Eto’o did not keep his word. Annie is now an adult, but is studying and still dependent on her mother, who is struggling to make ends meet.


According to a report from La Gazzetta dello Sport, Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus‘ lawyers will give their closing statement today in a legal battle that sees the Portuguese striker demand €19.5m for outstanding salaries.

Ronaldo has taken legal action against his former club Juventus claiming the Bianconeri still owe him €19.5m from the second ‘salary manoeuvre’ in the 2020/21 season.

The Serie A giants, on the other hand, believe Ronaldo has no right to demand such a fee as he practically renounced the outstanding salary when he moved to Manchester United in the summer of 2021.

The two parties have reached the final stages of the legal battle and will give their closing statement to the Court of Arbitration today. According to the report, there could be a further hearing in January 2024, but it is still unsure whether it will occur, while the Court of Arbitration will issue its verdict next year in April.
