We took our cue from Liverpool of last year, says Eto’o

PARIS: Samuel Eto'o said Barcelona had drawn inspiration from Liverpool to come from behind and beat Arsenal 2-1 to claim the Champions League title here on Wednesday.

The Cameroon attacker, picked as man of the match, scored the second half equaliser with Juliano Belletti netting the winner after Arsenal, reduced to 10 men, had taken a 37th minute lead.

“We never thought the game was lost,” insisted Eto'o.

“After having seen what Liverpool did last year we told ourselves not to throw in the towel.

“We followed Liverpool's example.”

Liverpool staged the most remarkable comeback in the competition's history when fighting back from 3-0 down at half-time against AC Milan in Istanbul last year to force the game into extra time and then win on penalties.

“In the final you can't doubt yourselves,” Eto'o added.

“The final's played right up to the last whistle. We covered ourselves in the spirit of Liverpool.”

Eto'o then tried to sum up what it meant for Barcelona to leave the Stade de France with the European crown tucked under their arms.

“It's incredible. There's no other word to describe it. In a few years, my son, I'll be able to tell him: we won the Champions League and I scored my team's equaliser.

“Tonight is for Barcelona, not for Ronaldinho, Belletti or Eto'o – it's a collective success.”

Quizzed at the post-match press conference on Arsenal keeper Jens Lehmann's controversial sending off in the first half Eto'o said: “The referee did what he thought was the right thing at the time.

“We thought he was going to let play go on and that the goal (from Ludovic Giuly) would be allowed. But he blew his whistle before, that's the way it is.” – AFP

its too bad that Arsenal left with 10man to play most of the game. otherwise it would have been a more interesting game.
