Samuel Eto'o Fumes At France Football After Being Included In Top Ten Right-Wingers List

Samuel Eto'o is fuming with France Football after they included him in their list of the greatest right-wingers in football history.

The Cameroonian played the majority of his glittering career as a number nine, scoring 371 goals at club level.

However, he was used out on the right to accommodate Lionel Messi in a Barcelona side that won the Champions League in 2009 under Pep Guardiola.

Messi himself has also been listed as a right-winger on the latest list from France Football as they bid to put together an all-time XI of the greatest players.

The likes of Arjen Robben, David Beckham, Garrincha, George Best, Luis Figo and Kevin Keegan but four-time African Player of the Year Eto'o is not having it whatsoever.

Taking to Twitter, the former Inter Milan man wrote: "Thank you but I played one or two seasons on the right yet I have 25 years of career as a centre-forward.

published at5 months ago

This year's Ballon d'Or award has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 award, with many feeling Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski has been robbed.

The Polish striker notched a staggering 55 goals in all competitions as Bayern won a memorable treble and has gone on record himself to say he would be the rightful winner.

Asked by Polish outlet, Sportowe Fakty who he would give the Ballon d'Or to, he replied: "Myself."

Explaining his reasons, the former Borussia Dortmund man added: "We won everything we could with Bayern. In every competition: Bundesliga, German Cup and Champions League, I was the top scorer. I understand that the pressure of other parties on another player may be greater."
