Former Barcelona striker and African footballer of the year, Samuel Eto’o Fil, has claimed that he was better than former Chelsea striker, Didier Drogba and ex Senegalese International, El Hadji Diouf during his playing days.
The Cameronian made the comment after El Hadji Diouf declared himself the greatest African player. He said:
“Even if my brother Diouf the last time, with an extra glass, got a little lost, there is no debate. None of them (Diouf and Drogba) can come and say that they were at my level or better. And it’s not the fact that I say it, it’s a fact, it’s something that is there. I wanted to be number one and I have been throughout my career.”
Eto’o – along with Yaya Toure – has claimed four African Player of the Year awards while Diouf and Drogba earned the accolade twice.
