On this day 15 years ago: Eto'o joins Barca
- The Cameroonian scored 130 goals in 200 matches between 2004 and 2009.
- He also won eight trophies with the Catalans, including two Champions League.
It was exactly 15 years ago when Barcelona secured the signing of Samuel Eto'o, one of the most iconic strikers of that time. On August 12, 2004, the African was confirmed as the Catalans' new player. He cost his club 'just' 24 million euros. Imagine how much he could be worth nowadays?
During his time at the Camp Nou stadium, Eto'o scored 130 goals in 200 matches. He also won eight trophies between 2004 and 2009, including three La Liga and two Champions League titles. Curiously, he managed to scoop two back-to-back UCL titles as he joined Inter the next year.
By the way, Eto'o was the first Cameroonian player to ever defend the Blaugrana crest.
