Real Madrid coach: We won’t sign Eto’o

Michel also took a swipe at the former Real Madrid striker, over his amazing rant with his current club this week.

He said: “We won’t sign Eto’o. I don’t believe he will leave Barca to come to Madrid. He was happy to leave Madrid after a mix-up with the directors.

“I am absolutely against what he has done. You must always keep your complaints inside the dressing room.

“His comments this week are only the tip of the iceberg. Inside the Barca dressing room there is a battle of egos and everything that Eto’o has said rings true because he obviously knows more about the situation there than us.

“There’s instability at Barca and now is the time for us to take advantage.”
