Cameroon great Samuel Eto'o: It's the end

Cameroon great Samuel Eto'o has announced his retirement.

The 38-year-old is best remembered for his glittering spell at Barcelona, helping the Spanish giants to win three La Liga titles and two Champions League triumphs.

After five years at Barca, he joined Inter Milan in 2009 where he won the coveted European crown for a third time - this time under the guidance of Jose Mourinho.

Short spells in the Premier League soon followed, with Chelsea and Everton among the 13 professional teams Eto'o has represented during his memorable playing career.

In a short Instagram message on Friday night, the Cameroon legend announced that he has decided to call time on his career after leaving Qatar SC earlier this year.

He wrote: "The End. Towards a new challenge. Thank you all, big love."
