Former Cameroon international, Samuel Eto’o has declared himself the best African footballer ever.
Eto’o started his career with Real Madrid before playing for 13 other football clubs which includes Barcelona, Inter Milan, Chelsea and Sampdoria.
Eto’o won three La Liga titles and two Champions League trouphies with Barcelona. He went on to win the Champions League with Inter Milan.
Eto’o won an Olympic gold at the 2000 Games in Australia, the Africa Cup of Nations in 2000 and 2002.
“I don’t need to lay claim to anything, it’s just a fact. Whether you accept it or not, it’s a fact,” Eto who retired in September told AFP.
“When I look at where I came from and how far I got, I tell myself that I am entitled to be proud. That doesn’t mean I am big-headed, far from it. It is just that, in this world, people like puppets and I don’t accept being one.”
