Present at the World Football Summit, Samuel Eto’o gave a long interview to the Spanish newspaper ‘AS’ in which he evokes several current topics, including the departure of Messi or the delicate situation that Barça is going through .

The team that Al-Khelaïfi and his staff have assembled is spectacular. Hopefully this great team wins everything they want to win.

Like many, no. Few could have imagined that Messi would leave Barca. But it’s football. It’s such a special world that we can never anticipate what’s going to happen, especially when it comes to transfers.

They are great players and it is a privilege for PSG to have them. As a city, Paris is one of the best in the world and as a team, it is one of those close to my heart. It is a very good place for them.

He is going through an economic crisis, but it is the case of almost all the clubs, except three or four… The crisis does not date from today, it lasts for years. Even so, Barca will always be Barca. What we want is that he continues to make us dream through victories.

Barça has always had its cantera, but I do not have the solution. I do not know. It is true that the youth system has brought a lot to Barca over the years and I hope they will continue to do so.

They can boast of having the best striker in the world, Karim Benzema. People can debate one or the other… but in the end, they are there. And this year we will have to rely on them in all competitions. Real remains Real.

It is clear that he was not given the place he deserved in football. But sometimes it happens in football. Some players are not valued and others, who do not deserve it as much, are. That’s life.

If it were up to me, he’s one of those who’ve earned it over the years. But there have always been many like that: Raúl, Maldini, Roberto Carlos… Very important players who have never won these individual awards.

With Guardiola in his first year we won everything, but Pep had an amazing team. With Mourinho, it was different. He showed us that with other players, we can also win. It was a pleasure to play for him at Inter. It’s difficult as an Interist to accept that he left for Roma (laughs)… But he’s a friend.

I don’t know if such a change is a problem for others. And if so, I want to know how. From there, let’s talk about it. A lot of people say that the players are going to have more matches and more trips… Do people know who is the ones who travel the most? South Americans and Africans. By organizing the competitions better, they will travel less and be more efficient. I don’t see a problem with that. If it’s something that will improve football in general, why not study it? Then there are other interests, obviously, but as an African and football lover, I think it’s something that can bring something and that would even allow an African country to win a World Cup. in the future.
