If the Barcelona star has reached this level, it is partly thanks to Samuel Eto’o.
During an interview on the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the La Liga, the Argentinian confided in his relationship with Samuel Eto’o and revealed the advice that the Cameroonian player had given him.
“I can’t stop remembering what Samuel Eto’o had told me. He said to me, “The day you start scoring, you won’t stop. He told me because I had many opportunities but I did not transform them. And one day I discovered myself and the goals started to rain. Whenever I’m on the field, I’m less obsessed with the goal and more with the game. ”
According to Lionel Messi, being the top scorer in La Liga history is one of his most special records.
“Being the top scorer in La Liga, with what the Spanish League means, is special. I think it’s one of the best records I have. “
