Former Chelsea striker and Cameroonian soccer star, Samuel Eto’o got married to his long-time Ivorian girlfriend, Tra Lou Georgette in a spectacular ceremony in Italy on Tuesday afternoon.
Eto’o wedded long-term partner Georgette Tra Lou at a church in the small municipality town of Stezzano, a town 25 miles northeast of Milan, northern Italy.
The breathtaking event took place in Stezzano, Italy, as hundreds of fans and well-wishers trooped out to see Eto’o and his new wife outside the church.
Eto’o And Wife Have 5 Kids, Dated 10 years
Eto’o and his pretty bride have been together for more than ten years and have five children together. Eto’o proposed to her in July 2014 with a €500,000 diamond ring, according to reports.
Reports however also have it that the pair had conducted a marriage ceremony sometime in November 2014, and have been traditionally married since 2007.
Hundreds of fans poured onto the streets of the small town to watch star wedding guests arrive.
Eto’o drove himself to the church – the Chiesa di San Giovanni Battista, looking dapper in a grey three-piece suit with a houndstooth waistcoat and black shoes.
He arrived, rather surprisingly in a vintage Fiat 500L, for someone who used to drive a £1million Bugatti Veyron to training sessions while at Chelsea.
Eto’o’s bride, looking gorgeous in a long flowing white dress, looking ever so elegant arrived in a Mercedes Benz Excalibur.
Eto’o currently plays in the Turkish Superlig for Antalyaspor, where he has scored 17 goals in 25 matches.
The former Cameroon captain’s best days, however, came at Barcelona and then Inter Milan where he was one of the best strikers in Europe. He won three La Liga titles with Barcelona, and two Champions League winners’ medals, including as part of a treble in 2008-09.
Eto’o has scored 323 goals in a 673-game career that has seen him play club football in six different countries.
