During his beautiful and rich career, Samuel Eto’o left his mark on the history of football. While he officially retired in September 2019, the quadruple African Ballon d’Or continues to receive praise from his former teammates with whom he evolved.
This is the case of the famous Italian defender Marco Materazzi who still remembers the promise made to him by the Cameroonian striker during the 2009-2010 season, after leaving FC Barcelona for Serie A.
With technician José Mourinho at the helm, Samuel Eto’o wins an unprecedented triple with the Neazzuris, and raises the cup with the big ears for the second successive time. Materazzi remembers that at the beginning of this victorious campaign of the club, the indomitable lion had made him the promise to offer the champions league to Inter Milan.
While invited in a live Instagram by journalist Sébastien Frey, Marco Materazzi came back to what the ex-pichichi from La Liga had told him: ” Eto’o is a brother and I will thank him for the rest of my life, “he said first before giving this testimony: ” he promised me the Champions League and he kept that promise, “ he said.
It must be said that the former captain of the Indomitable Lions is known for his great confidence. It will be remembered that when he arrived at Inter Milan, he said: “I came here to win the Champions League”, a goal which he will of course have achieved.
