FORMER Chelsea and Everton striker Samuel Eto’o was married at a ceremony in Italy on Tuesday afternoon. The 35-year-old married his long time partner Georgette Tra Lou at a church in Stezzano, a small municipality 25 miles northeast of Milan.
The couple have been together for more than a decade and have five children together. Eto’o proposed in July 2014 with a €500,000 diamond ring, according to reports at the time. Former Barcelona captain Carles Puyol was among the guests at the ceremony, as was former Inter Milan owner Massimo Moratti.
Hundreds of people spilled into the streets of the small town to watch wedding guests arrive. Dressed in a grey three-piece suit with a houndstooth waistcoat and black shoes, Eto’o drove himself to the church – the Chiesa di San Giovanni Battista. He arrived, rather surprisingly for someone who used to drive a £1million Bugatti Veyron to Chelsea training, in a vintage Fiat 500L.
Looking gorgeous in a long flowing white dress, his bride to be made a rather more elegant arrival in a Mercedes Excalibur.
