Senegalese legend, Samuel Eto’o has crowned himself the greatest player in the African continent. This remark was made in response to his fellow African footballe, El Hadji Diouf’s claims that he was the best Cameroonian legend .
Not only has the former Barcelona player boasted to be the best forward to come out of Africa, he has also said neither Diouf nor Ivory Coast’s Drogba are at his level.
He was quoted on GOAL thus, “Even if my brother Diouf the last time, with an extra glass, got a little lost, there is no debate, None of them (Diouf and Drogba) can come and say that they were at my level or better. And it’s not the fact that I say it, it’s a fact, it’s something that is there. I wanted to be number one and I have been throughout my career.” The 4-time African footballer of the year award recipient maintained.
Eto’o netted 56 goals for the Cameroonian national football team in 118 appearances, won two African nations cup titles, the 2000 Olympic gold medal, three Spanish La Liga titles, four UEFA Champions League titles, one Coppa Italia, two Copa del Rey titles, one Fifa Club World Cup during his spells at Chelsea, Everton, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Inter Milan and Real Mallorca.
