Barcelona's Samuel Eto'o reveals his love for cars


Samuel Eto might be all about goals this season with Barcelona but off the pitch it is cars that are his main passion.

Sport reports that in the last few days, the Cameroonian has been seen leaving training in a Ferrari 430 Scuderia with his father.

Not only does the car have a waiting list of a year but it is worth €228,595 and Eto'o has it in black, with two gold racing stripes down the middle.

Despite the fact that he is reluctant to put any figure on the amount of cars he has, it is known that he has had a passion for them for a while.

Since he was at Real Mallorca he has started to buy them up and it is thought that he has about 17 now.

Speaking to Sport he said that they are a way for him to lift his spirits when other things are not going quite so well.

"My passion is cars. I like to see them, to change them and to drive them. When I am a little down, I get in one of my cars and it lifts me," he mused.

"It is a passion I have and therefore I like to have a few cars, because it gives me choice and it doesn't hurt anybody. To give happiness the first thing is to be happy oneself, and I am."

Eto'o will return to the pitch this weekend as Barcelona take on Atletico Madrid at the Vicente Calderon on Sunday evening.
