By Johnny Edward in Port Harcourt:
Samuel Eto’o’s private jet was denied permission to fly out of Port Harcourt shortly after the Antalyaspor’s coach-player starred in Joseph Yobo’s testimonial game on Friday, Completesportsnigeria.com has gathered.
An impeccable source close to the organisers revealed that the four-time African Player of the Year landed his private jet without proper permission on Friday.
“Eto’o wanted to leave immediately after the match but his plane was not allowed to leave,” the source said.
“I’m not sure what exactly happened, but I was told the plane didn’t have permission to land in the first place but it looks like it has been sorted.”
Eto’o scored one of the goals for the Team Yobo side who lost 5-4 to the star-studded Super Eagles.
Emmanuel Emenike scored a hat-trick, while Jay Jay Okocha was the star of the show with his trademark tricks and flicks.
