Samuel Eto’o’s exceptional career was only possible thanks to his own quality. This quality is the fact that he managed to impose his own rules in all the clubs in which he played and won the most prestigious trophies in the world of football. If Samuel Eto’o never revealed it, one of his relatives recently let us know.
This close friend is none other than Pascal-Olivier Ouandji alias Hopiho, a longtime friend of Samuel Eto’o. The latter made this revelation during an interview he had with our colleagues from Sofoot:
“ It was thanks to his strength of character that he succeeded in establishing himself in Europe. I know that African footballers arriving in Europe with an offensive profile are often replaced in defense or recovery. It’s stereotypical: you are African, you have to win duels, you have to impose yourself physically, while you want to score goals! I’m sure that at the beginning, we wanted to dictate to Samuel Eto’o this kind of thing but, with his character, he imposed his own rules, “he said first before continuing:
” That’s what people admire about him. He never doubts and that is surely the reason why he has had such a great career. He always has confidence in himself, even in crisis situations ”.
It is therefore clear that it is the personality of Samuel Eto’o which allowed him to know all this success if we stick to the words of this close.
