The reason Pep did not keep Eto’o stayed at Barca

Eto’o did not really accept the leadership role of Messi. That forced Guardiola to come to a decision for the balance of the team.

Guardiola is weak and admits he has had a lot of trouble handling things like that. The admiration that Guardiola has for Pulga as well as his determination to build the team in the direction of serving him.

Guardiola is pleased to see Messi and he has the same vision of football. Because of that, his belief in the Argentine was strengthened even more. Pep Guardiola’s players often say good words about their coach.

Eto’o, Ibrahimović and Bojan all left Barcelona in an unhappy mood. All three of them played the same place at the club and all three ended up leaving because, indirectly or directly, Messi.

After Pep almost publicly sold Eto’o at the first press conference, the striker turned into another person. He worked hard, showing an unbelievably cheerful, amiable, and humble way. As a result, he has earned the respect of the dressing room and that of Guardiola.

Over time, Samuel returned to the image of an indomitable lion, a player who always played with the desire to win the title. On the pitch, he pushed the players in a very positive way, and even, as in the match against Atlético de Madrid at Camp Nou.

But that positive version of the Cameroonian player did not last forever. Maybe during training sessions or many matches, Eto’o is the one who inspires his teammates. In a match where Barcelona used this tactic, Samuel was pulled out in the middle.

That made Guardiola decide once again for the balance of the team, it was better to sell him. An incident that happened during a training session in early 2009 confirmed Pep’s premonition right. Another incident that happened later made Pep’s decision to sell Eto’o irreversible.

Man United’s victory and Cavani’s public opinion

Against Southampton, Man United continued to prove they were the team that deserved the most love thanks to the goals at the end of the match. Man United has always made its fans excited by the comeback in football.

Though Southampton had an impressive streak with Ward-Prowse inspiration. The quality of their players is also not comparable to Man United. And in the position of an underdogs, having a 2-goal lead in the first half made the Southampton players unconscious after being equalized.

Regret because 2 points lost made them choose to play too openly before the opponent got inspired. Therefore, failure is of course when Southampton players want to go up to find goals while Man United starts to be more alert.

If coach Ralph Hasenhuttl is sober enough to be satisfied with a point and asks his team to play tighter, maybe he will reach his goal. Of course, in football, everyone wants to win.

However, because of the ambition to earn 3 points, Southampton had to pay the price. They are too high but not qualified enough to escape the opponent’s blockade and lose more ball.

Man Utd’s victory came from their own intolerance. In the long run, Southampton’s approach is too dumb. And if we look at the Chelsea game – Tottenham then, we will understand more and more what foolishness is.

Cavani deserves to be the best player in the match even though he only entered the field at the beginning of the second half. One assist, two shots of chances to score enough to show that he is the most comprehensive and classy striker of Man Utd today.

It was thanks to Cavani’s assists that Bruno Fernandes’s match was redeemed. If not, Fernandes really had an average match. Cavani shines in front of Southampton, because he’s too talented, too experienced, too brave.

However, part of us also need to admit that when Cavani exploded, the players of Southampton were also physically exhausted. It was because Southampton was exhausted, a 33-year-old old general like Cavani was able to do so.
