Many across the world woke up to the news that Samuel Eto’o has finally bowed out of active football after a meritorious service to all the clubs he played and of course for his country Cameroon.
While there is no gainsaying about the impact as well as the numerous trophies Eto’o won in his playing days, a debate on whether the 38-year old is actually the continent’s greatest ever has since gone viral.

This kind of twitter Sha
Samuel Eto’o retired and instead of celebrating the man for his services, somehow Drogba is trending because people started comparing him to Eto’o
As if that’s not enough, Thierry Henry is also trending because people are now comparing Drogba to Henry

For some fans, Ivorian and Chelsea legend, Didier Drogba is their pick for Africa’s greatest while for others it is the Liberian President Goerge Weah that ticks the right boxes as the overall best African player.
See the view of various fans on who they think is the African best player ever…. Do you agree…. Please let us know your choice below!!!
The argument should be between George Weah and Didier Drogba.
Samuel Eto’o is the greatest African footballer. Others can only come close
