UCL Final: Samuel Eto’o picks favorite to lift the trophy

The Cameroon legend, Samuel Eto’o has highlighted Mason Mount and Phil Foden as two youngsters to watch out for in the final…

Cameroon legend Samuel Eto’o has thrown his weight behind his former club Chelsea in the upcoming Uefa Champions League final against Manchester City on Saturday. 

“I am happy to see my old club Chelsea qualify for the Champions League final once again,” Eto’o told Goal. “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,” he added, “only to leave as champions.”

He also believes that the presence of fans at the stadium will make it even more worthwhile.

“Playing in these big games is what every player dreams of,” he continued. “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.”
