Eto'o: "Inter in my heart, I'm staying"
Sunday, 29 May 2011 23:59:49

ROME (Ansa) – With the two goals he scored against Palermo in the Italian Cup final Samuel Eto'o reached 37 for the season, improving on the 36 he scored when he played for Barcelona. But the Cameroonian, speaking to Rai, acknowledged that, "the important thing in football is to win. My record is important too, but it wouldn't be so sweet without the victories." After the match the Nerazzurri striker also went to receive the applause from the Palermo fans: "Football is a beautiful sport and I wanted to thank all the fans, including the Sicilians who took a long journey to be here." Will Eto'o remain at Inter? "The president has spoken and that is enough. Will I stay? Certainly." (Ansa)

Presidente... You better have a solution now.

I don't understand why people are saying eto'o left for money, that's not why he left because inter management wanted to sell him to be in compliance with uefa ffp. There were never talks about eto'o leaving when season was over and not until the end of the summer then suddenly moratti said there is a good offer and inter will take it so eto'o was sold, and at the same time he got a increase in his wages. That's not his fault that's management and the fact that we are in a financial situation.

Thankful for his contribution

Irritated by his greed (But also by us accepting the offer in the first place too)

Goodbye Eto'o

I'd always imagined women are the best at curling considering it involves mainly brushing (cleaning).

As Han said, I'm just annoyed this fucking situation arose in the first place. Fucking Anzhi. It's just bad fucking luck, nothing else.

By the logic of this transfer, if the owner of some fucking Serie B team won the lottery and bid 60 million euros for Sneijder, our management would accept it.

It's a situation which you don't even have to think about a contingency plan for because the likelihood of it happening is so low. Well.. it happened.
I mean, seriously. Fucking ANZHI? Until I read a 5 sentence article online sometime earlier this year regarding Roberto Carlos, I had never heard of fucking Anzhi. And now they have the best striker in the world. I could imagine an EPL team or any big team bidding for Eto'o, but seriously... Anzhi?

The fact that this little shitkicker Russian club has the a) audacity, and b) money, to make a ridiculously audacious bid like this pisses me off beyond belief. The fact that it was 'too good to refuse' and we accepted it pisses me off equally as much.

Shit's fucked up when fucking shit that shouldn't fucking happen, happens.

Then why didn't he sell the trash like Pandev and such? And I don't believe a shit of this "Money is not the important thing, it's about football" because for the better football he should have stayed in the first place... Etc

Moratti gives a shit about Inter more than any of us more than likely. This club isn't just a plaything for him. It's the club he's supported his entire life, it's the club he's poured hundreds of millions into and people are still critical of him just because he isn't splashing the money like he used too. I find it very facepalm worthy indeed when people write that Moratti "doesn't care"...

As for fielding another player as great as Eto'o in this decade? Well it's only 2011 innit? Great players come and go but the club will always remain. I love Samu but he's gone and it's time to move on.
Let's talk about Inter as a business, in the exact same way, Moratti is treating the club.. It can be said without question he loves the club, but that still doesn't mean that we should ignore the fact that he's hurting the club now.. we are not prepared for the FFP, which HE HIMSELF was one of the biggest proponents of, the future is approaching and due to Moratti's own mismanagement, which brought us a period of great joy, we're set for an even longer stretch of mediocrity, where we would become a laughing stock, which again has to do with Moratti's words: "the offer is enticing", "we will spend in the market" (but he sells anyways), "our squad is good enough to repeat", etc. etc...

Were Milan fans ungrateful to protest against Berlusconi for doing the exact same thing a few years ago? (Berlusconi did it better though, He actually got a respectable amount of money for a crocked Kaka).. And up until last summer, I never thought Moratti was even capable of doing that, I knew the days of extreme spending were over, but what he is doing now has taken us from the pinnacle of Europe's elite to a club, that is only feared because of it's name.. a club, where us fans feel fear when facing any of Europe's even decent clubs, a club who sells quality players for low prices and replaces them with no future at the club.. (can you really say replacing Eto'o with Forlan does us any good - now or later?) Moratti has no plan, no strategy... He has no solution to get us out of this hole he has put us in.. He has met his aspirations and right now he is content with no longer doing what it takes to win.. and I'm fine with that, (we can't always win..) but why can't he enforce this "youth revolution" he's trying to get us to believe?

Forlan, Palacios? Why are we linked them? These players will not benefit us at all! Castagios, Alibec -- use them as back ups, but hell no, that won't happen under Moratti, he's going to spend cheap and HOPE that we win..

To be honest, I don't understand the full workings of the FFP, but surely there has to be a reason why clubs who are already in the negative spending paying no regard to it..

You don't think the inter management have tried to sell pandev. They probably would if a team came and offered to buy pandev. I agree that i wanted eto'o to stay and that inter management should have sold our other players like muntari, pandev and milito to allow eto'o wages/salary to offset or not weigh down inter's financial so much but, no team came with such an offer. Just look at muntari we have loaned him out so much, yet no team wants to keep him after seeing how good he plays while on loan, meaning that inter is stuck with him until his contract expires or a team gives us an offer for him, same goes for others like pandev and milito who were good in past but with injuries have made it hard for them to come back to peak condition.

I think if eto'o had turned down the offer inter management would have been pissed b/c they are the ones that you can say sought this offer, when moratti went on to say to journalists and media everyone's sellable on inter if the right price comes on the able, which he said back when the whole rumors of Man U wanting to buy sneijder happened at the beginning of the summer. If he had not said that maybe anzhi would have never approached inter for eto'o, who knows. I think moratti also made it a definite that eto'o go to anzhi when he said to media he has gotten a offer we can't refuse making it to me, seem like inter didn't want eto'o any more b/c they said it was an offer we can't refuse. If i was eto'o in that situation I would think I guess my times up b/c the boss moratti has said this is an offer inter will not refuse meaning I am already gone, at best I can hopefully get a good wage since my current team has basically decided thats it for me.

Yeah its bad that the best striker in the world just left our team but, you have to remember its b/c of the UEFA FFP policy why we did such a move.

I think the whole thing with this youth revolution moratti is trying out now for the squad, comes from looking at Barcelona who for many years before all the titles recently won, use basically a youth farming system to create the players they wanted to make there team right now into. Currently barcelona is set up into an 100% positional style of approach to football where there team is like 90% technique (controlling, short passing, moving into space) and 10% physical (defending, marking, stamina and endurance), that style of play works well in La Liga but in Serie A that style of play won't work b/c Serie A is built on both defense and attacking and not all out attacking which is what I think La Liga is about. (Hence why I feel La Liga is the weakest of the european leagues b/c its basically an all out attack league, while the hardest league in europe is serie A.) With Barcelona's system there defense is keeping the ball away from the opponent not actually physically running down a player and boding them off the ball (don't get me wrong they do that, but they can't keep up such a thing all game b/c that would break the positional style of play they have for there team. What I think moratti wants to do is use his youth farming system to develop inter youth players into a particular style of playing in which they work well when they make it to inters first team.

Samuel Eto'o's interview with Sky, posted on FC Inter News:

You came to Italy with a smile. Can you say that you leave it also with a smile?
"I always try to be happy and a smile has never been absent in my life. Like when I came here and now I'm leaving."

What do Inter leave you with?
"Everything went well here. Inter are one of the best clubs in the world, the best in Italy. I had an opportutnity to win it all thanks to my incredible teammates, sharing the joy."

Is there a person you want to thank in particular?
"I want to thank so many people and especially Moratti. I'll be brief even if you can only say the best things of this world about him. What I am saying is that if there is a God on earth, it's Moratti. Thank you for the support and the opportunity that you gave me to play in the best club in Italy. What did I said to him before leaving for Anzhi? It is something between me and the president and I don't want to make it public."

What did Moratti say to you before leaving for Russia?
"This cannot be made in public. It must remain between me and the president."

What was your biggest moment of joy at Inter?
"In the meantime, I also want to say thanks to my teammates, the best that I could play here with in Italy. And to all the coaches that Inter have had, especially Mourinho who really wanted me here. And thanks to Branca who made the transfer possible. Then thanks to everybody. All people that made sure that I could play and win at a high level. The best moment? When we lifted the Champions League and the Club World Cup. Moments that I will always carry in my heart."

When you came here at Inter and did not kiss the shirt because you wanted to win the affection of the fans. Do you think that you have succeeded?
"I hope that I have earned the respect from the fans. I have always given my all to win matches. At all times I have always been sincere and even when I was tired I have always tried to keep the smile. So I hope that I have the respect from this family."

Tell us about the coaches that you had at Inter.
"The Special One is one of the great coaches. When one doesn't know him, they can say negative comments in general. I understand that things like that can happen to those who don't know him. It is part of football but since I know him, I can only say thank you very much. The biggest confidence that he gave me was the chance to talk and discuss about tactical ideas and I think that demonstrates who he is as a person. I wish him luck and hope I can see him again soon. Then there was Benitez who arrived at a complicated time because we just won everything and I also thank him because he also gave me great confidence. The Leo came with difficulty. A hard time after the defeat in the derby, but that is part of a footballer's life. I've heard from him little but I told him that I also thought of him. Gasperini? I worked with him recently but he has a crazy team. With a little luck, he will do fine because everyone needs luck. Inter are part of my heart."

Can Inter win without Eto'o?
"I hope so. Football remains the same no matter who leaves and who comes. But we are all together as an Inter family. I will root for this team when possibility comes."

Who is the person you are going to miss the most?
"Materazzi. I would like to thank all the people who supported me at all times. I'm talking about the fans also. I thank them especially to Mauro. And then to the people around me, my "mother" Ciacia. And finally to one that made me feel like an Italian: Marco Materazzi, I wish you the best, my home is your home. Thank you."

In these days of the negotiations many people have talked. What is the nicest thing someone told you?
"I was told the nicest thing by Stankovic who we call our captain. He has hallways wished me well. The best for me was always the best for him. Many times in this world we have big egos, but he has put his well on the second plane many times."

A prediction on Serie A?
"I don't watch the other teams. Milan should win if we look at how the last championship ended, but for me Inter are the strongest team and I expect them to do well. I hope they can fight and win the championship."

Other than football, what will you take with you from Italy?
"Everything. The support of the people and the affection. They've made me feel like a part of the Italian family. And then all the players that I've met that I didn't know, they've always respected me and made me feel like a good player. It was an opportunity to grow as a footballer and as a person."

Tell us about the last days, what emotions did you feel?
"I've always said that the best needs to come in life, and when an opportunity comes and God has given it to you. I accept it because it's him who has given me everything I have in my life."

Is the Italian football happy according to you?
"In the last year yes, even though the Spanish football is at top. I must say before coming here I had another picture of the Italian football, but I'm happy because it's not as they describe it and I hope the people and especially you journalists really describe the Italian football as it is. It's a good league and I hope it continues to be good."

Is there an an opponent you'll be happy not to face anymore?
“No one. I have always respected everyone."

What do you know about Russia?
"I know that I must go there to play, nothing more at the moment."

Can you say that you are a happy man?
"I am always happy of my life. Apart from football, I have many things that make me happy, my family for example makes me very happy. Football is a big part of me and I am happy because I have everything that I've wished for: to play football. It was my dream, and then around it I have friends who want me well."

A salute to the fans of Inter?
"I think I've already said goodbye to them. The last people I want to salute are you journalists. There are always ups and downs in this world, but I've always felt well and I want to thank you for treating me and my family well. I hope we'll meet soon in life."

And after football what would you like to do? Would you like to return to Milan?
"I'll return for sure, I have a house here. I surely need to return and I have many reasons to return and to stay here forever. When you start working you also think about what comes after with luck, or without luck, my profession is one that lasts long. I've directly thought about what I'll do after, but I can't tell you now."

Those russians really make him sweat for that kind of money :D and they also make sure they receive a healthy player...

They were probably thinking how come INTER let Eto'o go for only that transfer fee?! something must be wrong... let's test the shit out of him!
