Everton supporters react on Twitter to Samuel Eto'o's departure

Everton Goodison 2

We compile the best reaction from Everton fans on Twitter to Samuel Eto'o's departure.

Everton supporters have been left disappointed to see Samuel Eto'o leave the club after his transfer to Sampdoria was confirmed today.

Eto'o arrived at Goodison Park last summer amid high expectations, but the move never worked out and he was only on Merseyside for a brief period of time.

His departure has been a source of frustration for Toffees supporters, who were looking forward to seeing such a high profile player represent them.

During his time with Everton, Eto'o made 20 appearances, but his return of four goals suggests that he is starting to age.

At 33-years-old, the Cameroon international has lost his electric pace and seems a shadow of his former self.

Romelu Lukaku was regularly chosen ahead of him to lead the line by Roberto Martinez, while Steven Naismith and Ross Barkley were generally preferred in an attacking midfield role and his return to Italy can hardly come as a surprise.

It has still left many Everton fans wondering exactly where a move which promised so much went so badly wrong and they feel that a new signing will be needed to cover the loss of one of their more experienced stars.

Here is the best reaction from Toffees fans to Eto'o's departure on social media site Twitter.
