The current president of the Cameroon Football Federation, Samuel Eto’o, thinks he knows who the best African footballer in history is. During an interview with the Ecofin Agency, the Cameroonian voted for himself.
For Samuel Eto’o, you don’t have to look far to know the best African footballer in history. If some lean toward George Weah, the only one who managed to win a Ballon d’Or, Samuel Eto’o thinks that, on the contrary, he is ahead of everyone.
“I am a unique player. I must be given my place. I am the best in Africa. “The others know it and must accept it,” said Samuel Eto’o. Several aspects plead in his favor, in particular the titles, both in club and in selection, as well as his aura and his influence on the different teams where he played.
“I assure you that if I were Brazilian and my name was Eto’osinho, I would be even more popular,” he added.
Pure Eto’o, certainly, but the truth in the background!
