Cameroon legend Samuel Eto’o has dismissed the notion that he will be retiring from football at the end of the current season.

Eto’o, 37, has enjoyed an illustrious career that started back in 1997 when he graduated from Real Madrid’s academy and made his first-team debut as a teenager.

He went on to enjoy glittering success in LaLiga with rivals FC Barcelona via a stint at Mallorca before winning the treble under Jose Mourinho at Inter.

Spells in Russia, England and Turkey soon followed before he joined Qatar SC in August last year, where he’s maintained his level of performances that ranks him as one of Africa’s finest ever footballers.

With seven goals in 12 games across all competitions, the Cameroon all-time record goalscorer who is currently in South Africa admits he is not ready to call it quits just yet.

“At my age I prefer to stay in Qatar. I am grateful that they have given me an opportunity to play while I am also planning my education project,” Eto’o said.

“I think I will go another year and then see after that, I will not look too far ahead. I have always said I will be the first to stop playing once I cannot give my best.

“Football means a lot but when it’s not normal for me to do it to my best ability, then I stop.”
