Speaking in an interview with AFP, the 38-year old said it is undebatable that he is Africa’s GOAT. “I don’t need to lay claim to anything, it’s just a fact. Whether you accept it or not, it’s a fact”. “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”. The 38-year-old played for 13 clubs including Real Madrid, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Chelsea, Everton, and Sampdoria. He won one Champions League with Inter Milan. But while at Barcelona, Eto’o won three La Liga titles and two Champions League trophies and also helped his country to win Olympic gold at the 2000 Games in Australia, the Africa Cup of Nations in 2000 and 2002.
