Eto’o: Barcelona won everything because of me, not Ronaldinho

Samuel Eto’o still cannot understand why Pep Guardiola made him leave Camp Nou. The Inter forward says he will retire at Montpellier.

The Cameroon captain rejects claims that he was a disruptive influence in the Barca dressing room.

“I’ve played and I’ve won with Ronaldinho, Messi, a lot of great players. Instead of worrying for my place in the team, I contributed to the collective success. When Ronaldinho arrived to Barcelona, he won nothing. After my arrival, we won everything.”

Eto’o also admits that Leo Messi begged Guardiola not to sell the Cameroonian.

“When Guardiola wanted me to go, Messi came to him and said: ‘Sell whoever you like, but not Samuel’.”

The Cameroon international says he is likely to end his career at Montpellier.

“As a favour to Roger Milla, it’s not easy for me to say that I intend to play my last season at Montepellier.”

I’m still angry at the manner with which eto’o left the club. Guardiola swapped Eto’o for Ibra who only lasted a season after some verbal confrontations between him Pep. Eto’o has rights to his claims. He was the one i grew up wanting to be like. Eto’o scored in two champions league finals against arsenal and man. voited. Other similar cases include the sales of Yaya and his ultimate replacement is Masch. A man who doesnt seem to get his tackles right. In all i have concluded in my heart that Pep is either a racist or He doesnt get… Read more »

A statement like that makes me think Eto’o might be a bit self centered. I don’t like thinking that, but I can’t help it.

This is very unprofessional from a great player like Eto’o.

Ronaldinho was and still is in a class of his own, it’s a shame a former team mate of his should belittle his value like Eto’o has just done.

Dispicable stuff from Eto’o!

Eto’o is a bit arrogant but he has the talent to back up his claims.

I think the Eto’dinho thing is true and Pep might not think black players are worth keeping.

In fact Barcelona is just like Real Madrid except they have a good guy image unlike RM’s evil empire image. They are twins, those two monsters deserve each other.

Eto’o is better than Ronaldinho at the moment. but the key words are “at the moment”. I think dinho has had a much better career and is a better player. Not by much but the difference is there to be seen by all.
