Friendly feud with Geremi drives Eto'o before final
MADRID, May 10 Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o says a friendly feud with Cameroon compatriot Geremi is spurring him on to win next week's Champions League final against Arsenal.
''Geremi is always flaunting it in my face that he has won two European Cups,'' Eto'o told sports daily Sport today.
''Things like this get to me. But I ask him if he wants to bet on who will end up winning more European Cups, then he shuts up.'' Chelsea's versatile midfielder Geremi has two winners' medals from the 1998 and 2000 finals which he won with Real Madrid.
Eto'o said: ''If we win next week it will be my first Cup. The one Real won in 1998 I don't consider mine because although I was in the official photo, I didn't do much else.
''I would be a liar if I said I didn't want to score next week but in all honesty I would rather miss six sitters and that the team won. That's far more important.'' The final is held in Paris on May 17.
