Eto'o also discussed his fall-out with former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola – whom he claims wanted to send him to Uzbekistan.

The pair rowed during their time at Camp Nou and Eto'o believes he was shown a “total lack of respect” by the Spaniard, who often used Thierry Henry ahead of the current Blues star in the starting line-up.

“Guardiola has never been a great player, he was just a good player. I told him. He didnt prove anything when he arrived and he said certain things,” Eto'o blasted.

“What hurt me is that they invent things that the press relayed . They wanted to send me to Uzbekistan. I stayed at my place and I told him that he will apologize for that in the future .

“He gave the number 9 to Henry . Henry was happy. And it was a total lack of respect. I had done a lot for the club.

“Guardiola has never had the courage to say things in front of me. He passed by the players. Xavi told me they wanted me to stay but I had to talk to Pep . I say never, if you do not respect me, I do not respect you.

“He shook hands with me when I was at Inter and I played against Barça, but this was just for the cameras and TV. Behind the scenes before the match, he did not greet me." [source]

I really hate this guy he is so selfish. He should thank God or his lucky stars for the success that he enjoyed and or is enjoying. [-X

What an idiot. Utter stupidity from him, all those money have probably erased what little brain cells he had left.

Wouldn't surprise me if Mourinho had something to do with him saying it now as well.

What strikes me is that the players who have been coached by both Guardiola and Mourinho (Ibra, Eto'o) have said similar things about Guardiola.

However, I agree with you guys. These comments were ridiculous and selfish. Some are downright stupid, such as the fact that he didn't prove anything when he went there. He made Barcelona the best they've ever been in their history. Eto'o would not have enjoyed that treble without him. As for saying he wasn't a great player... what does that have to do with anything? His current coach was never a great player either.

For every ex-Barca player who has criticised him there are 10 others who love Guardiola. Then there are the millions of Barca and Bayern fans who love him as well, and of course the current Bayern players too. Perhaps these players should consider the possibility that they were the ones who instigated such an attitude towards them. Guardiola, like LVG, tolerates no BS. The players need to understand their role as players and have respect for his role as coach. We all know Ibra doesn't do that, and if Eto'o is willing to fight with someone over a shirt number, then I say he doesn't either. You're not the one calling the shots, Eto'o. [-X

No player was ever bigger than the club, and no player will ever be. These players need to understand that. Guardiola is great because he was not afraid to attack players like Ibra and Eto'o because of this regardless of how much of a big name they are.

@Borusse: I am curious to read your opinion on the matter, as an objective fan whose team has never been associated with Guardiola in any way.

Very true. Even after only a few moths at Bayern, he said the same thing. I don't remember the exact words, but it was something like 'either the players play how I tell them to, or they don't play at all'. It takes guts to say that to players if you're a new coach (no matter your pedigree) and they have just won a treble.

Wow after reading what Eto'o had to say about Pep, I'm lost for words on how I can describe him...
I actually used to like Eto'o, but nowadays, all his selfish attitudes have been uncovered by the media, and I'm really growing to hate him.

:evil:

Pep Guardiola has experienced defeat 14 times in 229 competitive matches since May 23, 2009. Furthermore, he wins a title every 17 matches.

Madness!

Not sure how that is worked out, but if we divide the number of titles from the number of matches it is actually every 13.5 matches!

Either way, as you rightly said: "Madness!" :shock:

Indeed. He's got 17 titles so far.

Heck, he's won more titles than lost matches.

Work for a week with Pep? No thanks (let's see what Müller thinks about it - who remembers :D).
