Eto'o has only recently joined the Blucerchiati, arriving from English Premier League side Everton.
Samp were beaten 5-1 by Torino at the weekend, with Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic declaring that the squad would be made to do double training sessions as a punishment.
However, according to the Gazzetta dello Sport, after completing the first session, the Cameroonian forward left the training ground without speaking to Mihajlovic.

Simon Jones: Reports in Italy of a bust-up at Sampdoria between coach Sinisa Mihajlovic and new signing Samuel Eto'o.
The coach ordered a double training session after 5-1 defeat to Torino but Eto'o allegedly didn't turn up for the second session at 3pm amid claims he had a prior commitment in Milan in the afternoon.
Apparently, Eto'o is staying at the same Genoa hotel as Mihajlovic. Table for two tonight?

The courting of Eto'o by Sampdoria was a disgrace in my opinion but It looks like they deserve each other. I sincerely hope it all ends in tears.

Following the team's 5-1 humiliation at the hands of Torino in which Eto'o came on as a late substitute, Sinisa Mihajlovic demanded his players attend a double training session as punishment.
Eto'o, though, opted not to show up for the latter meeting, enraging his new boss who did not mince his words when asked about the 33-year-old:
"To argue it takes two people, however, he is the one with the problem," the Serbian tactician stated.
"He just left and it has shown a total lack of respect for me and the entire team."
Yet, when asked directly about what action the club would take, he was quite vague in his response:
"[To be honest], I do not know what the club plans to do."
