Samuel Eto’o has been every Gooners dream signing this year, and he has indeed been linked with a stunning move to Arsenal, but now that rumour has died down, the egotistical gobmeister has opened his big trap once again.

Eto’o killed rumours of a move away from Barcelona after claiming he was going nowhere following his team’s crushing 6-0 victory over Athletico on Sunday.

Last summer we had to endure Eto’o ‘come play with me Henry’ pleas almost every day, and as it appears the Cameroon forward has committed himself to Barca, so the pleas start once again.

He said: ‘We were ready to welcome him with open arms. We would have been happy had he come and we would have had a great team – we still have a great team, but it would have been special.’

‘I don’t know if we [Ronaldinho, Messi, Henry and Eto’o himself ] could all play together. That is the coach’s job. The coach decides who to sign and how the team will play.’

‘All I know is that I want the best players in my team and Henry is one of the best.’

All I can say to that is ‘Shut your f****** mouth’.
