Eto’o On Watching Sundowns And Whether He Would Play In The PSL

Samuel Eto'o Has Commented On The Level Of Football In Mzansi And Whether He Would Consider Playing In the PSL

By Shaistah Kader - Jan 12, 2018 02:55 PM @Shaistah_K

Former Barcelona star, Samuel Eto’o was in South Africa to participate in the launch of the Castle Africa Fives tournament and the Cameroonian shared some of his opinions on the level of football in Mzansi.

The striker, who is an official ambassador for Castle Africa, doesn’t seem like he will be hanging up his boots from the beautiful game just yet, as he is still currently enjoying professional football for Antalyaspor in Turkey’s top flight.

Speaking to the media at the launch of the Castle Africa Fives event, Eto’o said that he rates the level in the Premier Soccer League as one of the best in Africa, although, would not comment on whether he would possibly be open to plying his trade in Mzansi’s top flight.

“(Laughs) No, no, tomorrow is so far, I want to enjoy today,” Eto’o said after being asked whether he would consider coming to play in South Africa for a team like Mamelodi Sundowns. 

The former Inter Milan striker then went on to reveal that he often keeps an eye on South African football and recently watched the Absa Premiership clash between Ajax Cape Town and Sundowns.

“Yes of course. I watched Ajax against Sundowns, the level is very high and the (best) level in Africa, but they have to make this level (higher),” he said.

eto'o is aa brand he can't be brutally honest cause that would damage his own image, but judging from his face he has no interest in playing in the weak PSL, besides even the rich sundowns can't afford him at this point he's getting 20m euros or pounds, do you know how many rands that is that would cover salaries of all players probably every player in the psl for more than 3 months, Eto'o can hire and fire nyawana if he wanted to

Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung says some players who are not getting game time are not willing to leave because it feels like they are in heaven at the club.“Even players that we wanted to loan [out], some don't want to leave. I don't know why, Chiefs is like heaven I think. “Even a player that you feel needs game time it's painful for them to leave. But at the end of the day, we can't deprive players of exposing themselves. I mean a player is as good as his last game. “If players are not playing you don't take pride and say 'I got a Porsche it's in the garage I'm not driving it'. “The car wants to move, you can't be paying players that are not playing because we are paying them to work and express themselves. “So it becomes a bit difficult, but others don't want to leave even if you say here is an opportunity for you.” Motaung added: “But if clubs want players from us we do open doors to loan them out. Celtic approached us for a defender and we gave them Lorenzo Gordinho and he is playing. “Also it's benefiting us because our players are somewhere in other clubs competing and it's to our our benefit.”"I play for Kaizer Chiefs", this will get you more beautiful chicks than , " I play for Bloem Celtics" you have to explain what is Bloem Celtics....
