Ex-Barcelona striker Eto'o: I love Guardiola as a coach, but not as a person

Former Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o admits he was never friends with Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.

The pair had a season together at the Nou Camp before Eto'o left for Inter Milan in a swap for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

"I love him as a coach, but not as a person," said Eto'o to Marca.

"I learned to play football with him.

"He interprets things better than anyone else. He is the best, but of course he loses matches."
