Intervened on the sidelines of the Vanity Fair Stories Festival , the former Inter striker Samuel Eto'o talked about different topics related to current events and therefore in reference to racism in Italian stadiums, than to the glorious past lived with the Nerazzurri shirt and culminated in the Triplete of 2010. Many good memories for the Cameroonian, from the feeling with former president Massimo Moratti to the determination that José Mourinho was able to convey in his speeches. Here is the interview of the former footballer:
RACISM – "What do I think of the incidents of discrimination happened to Balotelli and Lukaku? Unfortunately the problem has been the same for years. It has not worsened, only that we talk about it more on political issues. The problem is not four ultras that say stupid things, but rather the leaderships that need to do more to put a stop to certain behaviors. We should never forget how many children follow this sport, we must aim to be an example: so journalists too must condemn certain episodes, and obviously the players must also give the their contribution. They must go on strike. Stopping playing could be an important signal, because it would affect the interests of many, the wallet. But the protest should not only concern black players, but all, but I can say that Italy is not a racist country: I have many friends who work here and find themselves very well ".
INTER – "The best memory? The president Massimo Moratti, with him we could talk about everything, he was like a god. The turning point of the season of the treble? The match with Chelsea, Mourinho gave us a crazy speech, even before going down on the pitch we knew we would win. But the most incredible moment was the match against Barcelona, what a pain ".
ETO'O TODAY – "I am a gentleman who is continuing his studies and who has a goal, but first he must complete his preparation and soon he will go to Boston. No politics? In reality we always do politics, for example when we talk with our "Whatsapp? We have a chat with the old Nerazzurri. If I follow Italian football? Sure, this can be a good year for Inter. I'm a great fan."
