Barcelona Legend’s shocking statement about Barcelona
Samuel Eto’o, the former Barcelona striker has confessed that the 2021/22 season has been very disturbing to watch as a person who has a deep, lasting bond with the club. He hasn’t been able to enjoy Barca games as the club keeps struggling and Eto’o is concerned that they might not make out of the Champions League group.
“Recently, Barcelona have made me suffer,” the Cameroon legend Samuel Eto’o reported to the Marca. “These are tough times for those of us who love the club.”
Barcelona are currently 9th in LaLiga with 7 games played and only 3 wins and 1 draw. But still we are just 5 points behind the league leaders Real Madrid and last season Barcelona came so close to winning the league after coming behind from way down in the table.

It would be hard to accept group stage elimination in the Champions League. I still hope they can go through.”
FC Barcelona are yet to win a champions league game this season as they faced humiliating defeats against Bayern Munich and S.L. Benefica, 3-0 in both occasions. However, the four-time African Footballer of the year, Samuel Eto’o stated his solution of getting through the frustration and disappointment.
“Barcelona have started the season badly, but the Clasico is a unique match and the players must make the most of it to change the dynamic of the season”. Eto’o expressed the importance he holds for the El Clasico by saying that beating Real Madrid is worth six points, not three.
“Those of us who have played that fixture know it’s the most beautiful game in the world. I have played in Champions League finals, but I can say that the Clasico is unique. There’s nothing else like it.” Samuel Eto’o believes that the first few games right after the international break, against Valencia, Dynamo Kiev and Real Madrid would be very determining of what is to come later this season.
Eto’o enjoyed a five-year spell with Barcelona with huge success, winning 3 LaLiga titles and 2 Champions League trophies. So it is only natural for a player like him to feel the pain, seeing your beloved club fall into pieces.
Can Barcelona make their comeback, not only for Samuel Eto’o, but for all of us Culers as well?
