Cameroonian football legend, Samuel Eto’o Fils says former Ivorian footballer, Didier Drogba, and former Senegalese hero, El-Hadji Diouf can’t be compared to him when it comes to football.
According to Eto’o, he believes he is the best African footballer of all time, insisting Drogba and Diouf are not his equals.
His comment is in reaction to a statement by Diouf that he is the ‘GOAT of African football’ but Eto’o in an interview with Goal.com said “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,” Eto’o said.
Eto’o in his prime played for the likes of Barcelona and Inter Milan during an illustrious career in Europe.
He won the Champions League and several league titles, along with four African Player of the Year awards.
