Samuel Eto’o advised Xavi to move to Barcelona while Lionel Messi is still performing.
“I told Xavi that whatever happens, he needs to go back to Barca,” he told Cataluyna Radio. “He has worked with him and that’s going to make life simpler for him than for anyone else.”
The former Cameroon star compared the holder of the six-time Ballon d’Or to football divinity:
“I told him he has to do so when there’s still the God of football.”
