Barcelona striker Eto'o: Guardiola told us never to lose faith

Samuel Eto'o hailed Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola after their Champions League shock at Chelsea last night.

"Pep told us never to lose faith," said Eto'o. "He is the best.

"We believed in ourselves until the end. The game was incredible. It was a mistake from their defence and Andre (Iniesta) does not need to look when he gets a chance. We followed the script of the entire season.

"We knew we were going to spend a lot of time in our own half. If we progress, it is because we deserved to. We played as usual. Our weapon is the ball, the only one we have.

"The draw takes us to Rome, with our game. We should go match to match."
