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.”
