So he will be the Samuel Eto of the Turkish league. What an achievement.
Galatasaray fans love having an 'idol' figure playing in the number 10 role. There's the feeling that he could become the new Hagi at Galatasaray, in which case he very much be seen as a god. So that, and the huge amount of money they're paying him, from his point of view it is potentially a great move.
There are plenty of quality players who've played in Turkey. Hagi, Ortega, Ribery, Jardel, De boer and of course: Kenny Miller.
You'd have a point if they were better than Sneijder. Jardel, Ribery and Ortega aren't at least. As said prior, haven't seen Hagi.
Nothing bad with being a 'Eto'o' of a league. The two leagues & club cultures are drastically difference though. In Russia, I don't think there is much commercialisation of the game yet. Let alone with a very solid fanbase for Anji. So basically Eto'o is playing for cash. Whereas its the opposite for Galatasaray. Their fans live and breath the club, Sneijder will be revered. Throw in hes a handsome chap, very marketable and a world class playmaker on a good day.
The Fergie at Celtic Park is a bit weird. Isn't he in Qatar with the rest of United?
