This Wednesday, the Inter of Milan and the FC Barcelona confront in the Camp Nou in the corresponding party to the second day of the phase of groups. If something in common have both teams is that Samuel Eto'or was one of his big stars, since the Cameroonian achieved to raise the 'orejona' with both groups being a key player.

The ex Cameroonian forward spoke again in an interview for The Gazzetta dello Sport in which it spoke on some appearances of the duel between his two ex teams, as it could be his impartiality. "My heart is divided between Barça and Inter", confessed in no uncertain terms a footballer that elevated the African football to the highest.

On the bad start of season of the culés, Eto'or left clear that the explanation is the absence of Leo Messi. "Because the saint has played poquísimo, and he is the Barcelona. If Messi is not, notices that it does not play the saint. I expect that it do not play against the Inter by my heart, that has to be 50 to 50. If it plays Messi is very difficult that the party was 50 to 50", argued.

"My heart is divided between Barça and Inter"

In fact, for Eto'or is key the fact that at the end it play the Argentinian star if finally it recovers of his annoyances. "With Lukaku, Conte can dream in the Camp Nou", said, although remembering that "if it plays Leo, will be another history", since "I Read is a saint, the best of all time, have bred it almost like a son".

When they asked him if the best team of his career had been the Inter or the FC Barcelona, the ex African player had it clear and remained with the Mallorca. "No, the best team of my career has been the Mallorca, but the team that marks the turning point in my career, 50% the Barça and 50% the Inter", commented.

"The Barça was the shop window that has allowed me do dream to million African boys and that everything is possible in this life. The Inter has confirmed it and has been the successive point: two tripletes consecutive with two distinct teams. And it confirmed me that it had done well to the not listening to the people that said me: 'you do not have to go to Italy that the people of colour has problems'. Less than in other places, in reality", continued the ex player.

Guardiola Or Mourinho?

To Eto'or asked after him Pep Guardiola and José Mourinho and, on the Catalan, said that "I have won with a lot of trainers, but Pep has something different, does you play to amuse you". Regarding Mourinho, wished that it go back to train what before and, to be able to be, that was to the FC Barcelona or to Cameroon. "It is just that relax a bit, but the next season want it in the Barça or with Cameroon", sentenced.
