I didn’t play with Messi, he played with me – Eto’o corrects reporters

Former Cameroon striker, Samuel Eto’o, when asked how it felt like to play alongside Lionel Messi at Barcelona said he didn’t play with Messi, but rather he played with him.

Eto played with Messi at the Nou Camp, as he made his debut after Eto’o was already an established star.

In an interview quoted by the UK Mirror, Eto’o was asked: “You talk about Messi, what can [Ansu Fati] learn from Messi? You obviously played with him.”

The 40-year-old retorted saying, “No. He played with me; it is different. Messi played with me. I did not play with Messi. In my time, Messi played with me. It is totally different. It is totally different.”

Eto’o joined Barcelona from Real Mallorca in 2004
