New Delhi: One of the biggest names in the world of football, Lionel Messi has been labeled as a ‘god’ by former teammate Samuel Eto’o. The duo spent five years together at Barcelona between 2004 and 2009.
The Anzhi Makhachkala striker revealed that Messi is a god, as a person and even more as a player. The two share a firm friendship on and off the field.
Eto’o said that Messi will surely add international honours to his trophy cabinet as he’s got the talent and a cool head.
The Cameroon striker hopes that Messi wins the World Cup with Argentina. “To the gods of the world, all I ask is that you give him that chance because I have seen him grow,” he added.
He also spoke about the effect of Ronaldinho’s presence on his game during their stay at Barcelona.
He stated that Ronaldinho is a genius and not just in football. He recalled the day he was upset and did not play well but when he saw Ronaldinho arrive in the locker room with a smile on his face, you knew he was going to roll.
