Indomitable Lions all time top scorer and African football legend Samuel Eto’o Fils has a special place in his heart for Inter Milan.
The former Barcelona FC and Chelsea striker confessed his love for the 1964 and 1965 European Champions who won a historic treble in 2010 under Jose Mourinho with Eto’o amongst their outstanding performers.
Speaking to Gazzetta TV about the Italian giants, Eto’o expressed his love for his former employers and also expressed what he wished for the club in the future.
“Treble? I hope it does not remain a unique moment, because Inter wants to return to those levels. But that evening we won something extraordinary. At the beginning of the season we knew we had a very strong team and a President like Massimo Moratti who is an authentic myth.
“In those days my teammates and I, who wanted to win something, had in all of us the desire that Inter be present amongst those who play always in the semifinal, and maybe all the finals, because when you look at the history of a club like Inter and the players it has had, you understand that you always have to have a gaming philosophy and the ambition to always go to the top.”
Eto’o also talked about Inter’s ambition this season.
“Champions League race? Inter can do it. I always follow Inter, I’ll be rooting because I beat Empoli too”
Inter are playing against Empoli on Sunday for the final game on the season and a victory will seal them a place in next season’s UEFA Champions League.
