Eto'o supported Salah to join Barca

Cameroonian legend thinks Salah should go to the Nou Camp to become the best player in the world.

"Barca is a better place for Salah," Eto'o told BBC Sport. "Real gave me the opportunity to leave Africa, but I understand Barca's play, and believe that this is the right place."

Salah refused to answer the possibility of a future commitment to Liverpool after scoring in the Champions League final. Real is supposed to have Salah to replace the attacking blood. However, Eto'o advised the juniors to go to Barca after experiencing both teams.

"If Salah can play in the best league in the world, La Liga, then sign with Barca. He is qualified to become the best player in the world", the Cameroonian player emphasized.

Eto'o joined Real's youth team in 1996 and went on to the first team in 1997. However, the striker was only seven times available for the Madrid side. Eto'o was lent to Espanyol, Leganes and Mallorca. After lighting up in Mallorca, Eto'o was taken back by Barca and immediately became one of the world's top strikers.

Salah scored 71 goals and 21 assists in two seasons for Liverpool. The player joined Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino to become Europe's most feared trident.
