As it is often said, “only silly persons do not change”. Samuel Eto’o was not really a fan of Chelsea in 2005. At that time, the Cameroonian star evolved in Barcelona and had to face Chelsea in the knockout stages of the Champions League. Winning 2-1 in the first leg, the Blaugrana moved to Stamford Bridge to challenge the team coached by Jose Mourinho.
Questioned before the game, Eto’o did not mince words: “I’d rather sell peanuts in my village of birth, rather than playing in a club as pathetic as Chelsea”. The continuation is a nightmarish for Barcelona. The Spanish club bowed 4-2 in England and is eliminated from the competition.
8 years later, Samuel Eto’o whose transfer was formalized Thursday will wear the colors of Chelsea.
