Barcelona hero Eto'o tells Drogba: Forget it! I'm Africa's greatest

Former Barcelona and Cameroon star Samuel Eto'o says he's Africa's greatest.

El-Hadji Diouf recently made the bold claim that he was the greatest striker ever from the continent, while Didier Drogba's name always gets mentioned when debating Africa's greatest player of all time.

"Even if my brother Diouf the last time, with an extra glass, got a little lost, there is no debate," said Inter Milan Treble winner Eto'o.

"None of them [Diouf and Drogba] can come and say that they were at my level or better.

"And it's not the fact that I say it, it's a fact, it's something that is there. I wanted to be number one and I have been throughout my career."
