Thank you, Samuel

F.C. Barcelona has bid farewell to departing striker and Cameroonian international Samuel Eto'o (28) in a letter published on its official website. Below is an excerpt from the letter by Roger Bogunya:

Thank you, Samuel
The third highest goalscorer in Barça is leaving. But he can walk out the front door after five years at the club, winning almost everything on offer including last year’s memorable treble.

It is time to say goodbye and thank you to Samuel. The Cameroonian striker, came to the club from Mallorca and is now headed for Inter Milan. In his five seasons, he has scored 130 official goals, making him the third highest goalscorer the club has ever had. Only César (235) and Kubala (196) top his record.

Important goals
Eto’o will never be forgotten, not only for his character and dedication, but also his goals, many of which have proven decisive. Whenever called upon, he would respond, as he did in the final in Paris against Arsenal, where he scored the equaliser, or in Rome, where he opened the scoring against Man United (2-0).


Eight titles
Those goals meant two Champions league titles for Barça (2005/06 and 2008/09). But they were not the only wins for Eto’o in his time at the Camp Nou. He was also involved in the conquest of two leagues (2004/05, 2005/06 and 2008/09), a Copa del Rey (2008/09) and two Spanish Super Cups (2005/06 and 2006/07).

On an individual level, he was also top league goalscorer in 2005/06.

...

To bid farewell, he also scored for Barça in the Champions League final and in the last game of the league season, at Riazor. Thank you, Samuel.

We can argue about the best, it's difficult to compare times and teams. But what we can say is that you have been the most succesful striker in the over 100 years of history of this club. That alone is just incredible. All the best and thank you for helping to take this club to the place where it belongs: on top of the world of football

Legend. Simple as that.

Justin said...

Thank you very much for all he has done for Barça. Those two goals in the Champions League final worth every penny. I feel he is a little bit greedy in his wage demand but this is what make him good, perhaps.

Thanks for everything, Sammy! I will be happy if Zlatan can do half of what you did in FC Barcelona!
