Barcelona legend, Samuel Eto’o has come out to speak ahead of the upcoming Uefa Champions League final involving Manchester City and Chelsea on Saturday. He recently revealed that he is very happy to see his former club, Chelsea qualify for the Champions League final once again.
According to him, there are no favorites in a UCL final because it is just one game that will be won by the players that want it the most.
He added that the football world should not forget that we have seen teams arrive to a final unfancied, only to leave as champions time and time again.
His words, “I am happy to see my old club Chelsea qualify for the Champions League final once again,”
“For some, Manchester City are the favourites to lift the trophy, but in my opinion when it comes to a final, there is no such thing as favourites. It is just one game,so anything is possible.”
“Time and time again, we have seen teams arrive to a final unfancied, only to leave as champions.”
On youngsters to look out for, “For the young players such as Phil Foden and Mason Mount, this will be their first time playing in such an important game.”
“Despite their age, both players have had impressive seasons and could have a big impact on the outcome.”
“There are many great players past and present who haven’t had these opportunities, so it is important for the players to savour the experience and do everything they can to have an influence on the game.”
“Playing in these big games is what every player dreams of.”
“During my career, I had the honour of playing in many important matches, including the Champions League final on three occasions – winning it twice with Barcelona and once with Inter Milan – so I know how special it is to experience these moments with family, teammates and, especially, the fans.”
