Eto'o Admits Possiblities Of Playing For LiverpooL

Samuel Eto'o believes he will still be a Barcelona player next season, but admits it would be 'wonderful' to play for Liverpool.

The 26-year-old Cameroon striker has been continuously linked with a move away from the Spanish giants after falling out with coach Frank Rijkaard earlier this season, with a host of Premiership teams including Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United having expressed their interests.

However, Eto'o says that while it would be ‘wonderful' to play for Liverpool, he is adamant he will still be with the Catalan giants next season.

Eto'o told the Sunday Mirror: "I have not heard anything from Liverpool or anyone else. These things don't come through to me.

"I'm only thinking about next season and I will be here next season. But every year that passes things become a bit more difficult.

"The great thing about Liverpool is their team spirit. It is very strong, but, for me, it is their fans who win matches for Liverpool because they have so much power. They are fantastic.

"Any player would love to have those types of fans behind him. I have played at Anfield in the Champions League quarter-final so I know all about their fantastic supporters.

"It would be wonderful to have that kind of support as a Liverpool player, but I really don't know what will happen in the next two years. Every time I turn around so many things have happened and changed. So I can't think about it yet. But you never know."

He added: "If I play in the Premiership I will be the first to say. It won't be in the newspapers - I will be the one to break the news!"
