Samuel Eto'o insists he'd be mad to leave Barcelona.

Of his own future, Eto'o also told the Daily Mail: "Let me ask you something ... If you were playing in this Barcelona team the way it is playing, would you want to leave for anywhere else in the world?

"If you think about that question logically you will get your answer. But just to be clear, I have no intention of leaving.

"For me, we have the best attacking force in world football. It is an honour to play in this team with so much talent. I have been very pleased with my own scoring form this season, but it remains that I could not reach the levels I do without so much talent around me.

"The service I get is exceptional and we play with no fear. Some of the players in Barcelona’s attack will go down in football history and sometimes you need to take a minute and have a think about just how special this team is.

"Look at Xavi. This is somebody who just makes the team work. He is like the part of the machine that just makes everything come together. He is considered one of the best central midfield players in Europe and that is quite right, because he really is that good.

"You will not meet many more passionate men in the world. Some people win, but some are winners. He doesn’t have another option apart from 'win' in his brain."
