SLTV - Eto’o: I’m Proud To Still Be Among Messi’s Friends
Former FC Barcelona and Inter Milan striker, Samuel Eto’o, opened up about his relationship with six-time FIFA Ballon d’Or winner, Lionel Messi.
As one of Africa’s most decorated football stars, Cameroon’s all-time top scorer won two AFCON titles at international level and four UEFA Champions League winners medals with Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Inter.
With a grand total of 360 goals over the vast length of his career, the four-time African Player of the Year revealed his close friendship with the Argentina international, what advice he gave the then young Messi as he broke into the first team as a teenager and the legacy the 32-year-old will leave when he decides to hang up his boots.
During this pre-lockdown interview, Eto’o also said…
- "He would move from the B team to the first team…"
- "He's achieved that through his own hard work…"
- "He's still a good person…"
- "He's always had that talent…"
