- Eto’o says he will continue to be a fan of the club
Former Inter Milan striker Samuel Eto’o has stated that he will always remain a Nerazzurri following Jose Mourinho’s message to him, saying the connection has never waned.
The Cameroonian legend played at the Italian club between 2009 and 2011 scoring 33 goals for the club in his 67 matches in all competitions.
“That's right, when you become an Inter fan once, you will die as an Inter fan. There is no reason for this, it's simply how it is, period."
Eto'o revealed how Jose Mourinho signed him from Barcelona.
“He called me speaking perfect French and said, 'Eto'o, trust me. You'll be very happy with the move to Inter, it will become like your home.' He was right.
“Mourinho sent me a picture of a Nerazzurri shirt with the number 9 on it and wrote, it's yours, it's waiting for you."
Meanwhile, France international Kylian Mbappe has been backed by Cameroonian football legend Samuel Eto'o to take over from Barcelona captain Lionel Messi whenever he retires from football.
