@Thusa, M
Before you throw out allegations of disrespect, I challenge you to find ONE instance where Eto'o speaks ill of Barca or his time there. Do most Barca followers regret the swap? Yes. Still, that does not mean there is hostility or disrespect between Barca and their former player.
1. Eto'o received a warm welcome and grateful applause from the Nou Camp crowd when he returned in an Inter shirt.
2. Eto'o payed a surprise visit to Barca training on 13 Oct 2010, where he is shown to be smiling and hugging his old teammates

Just as he will always be remembered as a Barca legend, I am confident he will remain a culé.

If you want to show Eto'o some respect, do not put words in his mouth!

Second, Barca has always demonstrated great respect for Africa.
1. Barca has committed $1.9 million to UNICEF every year for the last 3 years and the next 2 years to fund HIV/AIDS programmes in Swaziland and elsewhere. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0IXS6p9Ojus
2. Barca's charitable arm "Més" has also partnered with ninemillion.org to help provide education and aid to young refugees around the world.

Do not disrespect a club that repeatedly proves it is "més que un club." You may cheer against them on the pitch, but please do not disrespect the Club's motives off the pitch.
