In 2013 Samuel Eto’o has taken back his words “Rather Sell Peanuts Than to Play for Chelsea”

          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.
