Eto'o: “I’ll need to score in Rome”


The Barça striker played down having had a lot of chances against Mallorca and only taking one. The important thing is getting it right in Rome.

“The ball just wouldn’t go in but these things happen,” commented Eto’o. “I’m having a tough time at the moment.” However, he hopes that in the remaining League games he can get back to his goal-scoring ways. As for Rome, “there’ll be few chances and I’ll need to score”.

The striker also thinks that the most important thing was winning the League: “The team’s done it and with a couple of games still to go. That means we can start getting ready for the Champions League final with that off our minds”.

“There’s still a game to go and we need to get to Rome in the right condition.”

“As I said a few weeks ago, I’m really happy about this season, how things have gone and like any other player I’d like to have more game time. But that doesn’t mean anything. There’ll be time to talk in the summer; there’s been some misunderstanding here. I said something that any player could have said.”

“Last night my teammates and family congratulated me on the League title.”

“We’ll be the best ever if we win in Rome.”


“I think Pep believes in me but I have to keep on working.”

“Playing games like this with the first team is very motivating. Let’s see if Pep calls us up again next week.”

“It’s good for the reserves having Guardiola as coach because he knows about the academy.”


“Today was a match in a competition we’d already won. The important thing is that we’re League champions.”

“We have to enjoy this because the important thing is that we’re Cup winners and League champions”.

“That’s the goal, we’d got ready for it, we’ve now done it and now we just have the last competition to go.”

“We’re trying to tie up the loose ends. We’ve still got two games left to help Eto’o be the top goal scorer, and we’ll do everything we can. Today he was unlucky, but the goals will come.”

“We have to enjoy the final in Rome because they’re unrepeatable games and you have to enjoy them as if it was your last moment on earth.”


“I celebrated the League title at home, and I was very happy that the Villarreal result made us champions.”

“It was a bit strange after other Leagues when we’ve celebrated on the pitch. But the most important thing is that we’ve won the League.”

“Winning three titles would be a very good season, and now we’ve got the chance to do just that.”
