I Didn't Play With Messi, He Played With Me - Samuel Eto Sets The Record Straight

African football legend, Samuel Eto fils, has been applauded on social media for showing seniority, after he provided an answer concerning his career days with Lionel Messi.

In the said discussion, he was asked about the experience he had with Messi while playing with him at Barcelona. 

Surprisingly, he made it clear Messi joined when he was a starlight at the Spanish club, so the expression should be reframed with respect.

To me it's an act of maturity. Why am I saying this?

The fact that the Argentinian captain has become a household name at the moment, doesn't mean he should placed ahead of a soccer giant like Eto.

Regardless of the football achievements Messi has been recognized for, we should still give credit to predecessors and honor them for their efforts.

From the comment passed by Eto, I believe he was a bit intimidated by what the interviewer said, hence his counter response.

On social media, football fanatics rallied behind Eto for his actions, and commended him for the records he has made in the football terrain.

One huge fan of Samuel Eto stated clearly that an old man can never play with a small child, so it's safe to say Messi played with the Cameroonian star player.

Others had different opinions concerning the situation. However, the debate was focused on bridging the gap between the two influential personalities.

Infering from the comments shared by these football lovers, do you think 'Eto' should be given the respect he deserves as a soccer maestro?

Tell us what your opinion is.
