Inter Milan ace Eto'o explains Man Utd goal celebration

Inter Milan ace Samuel Eto'o has explained his Champions League goal celebration against Manchester United last season.

Eto'o helped Barcelona clinch their Treble with a goal in the victory in Rome against United and he revealed: "On the morning of the final, my father sent me a message and it took me 6 minutes to read it.

"He summed up his life to me, everything they had fought for ... when I read it I felt like fighting the world and the world for me was Manchester United.

"When I scored I touched my arm to say that his blood was my blood."
