Cameroon legend, Samuel Eto'o says he is the greatest African player to have ever played the game.

Eto’o spoke after El-Hadji Diouf of Senegal recently claimed that he was the greatest striker ever from Africa. Some on social media insist Ivory Coast legend, Didier Drogba is the greatest striker out of Africa.

For Eto’o there is no debate. “None of them [Diouf and Drogba] can come and say that they were at my level or better.  And it's not the fact that I say it, it's a fact, it's something that is there. I wanted to be number one and I have been throughout my career,' he told Goal. 

Eto'o along with Yaya Toure of Ivory Coast claimed four African Player of the Year awards, while Diouf and Drogba earned the accolade just twice.
