Biggest mistake made by Barcelona was the signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.


Zlatan signed for Barcelona for €40m and Samuel Eto'o, but according to me he doesn't deserve to be a part of this transfer. Italian football is not the same since 2006, they have lost the touch of competing with EPL and La Liga and they don't have those superstars they use to have.


Zlatan stats are not even that impressive, especially being big game failure since his birth in football.


Zlatan Serie A Stats

Goals: 80 Appearances: 158



Champions League Stats

Goals 9: Appearances: 41



There is no need to write Eto'o stats because Eto'o is too good to be compared Zlatan. But still, for the crazy fans of the most overrated player Zlatan Ibrahimovic I will write.


Eto'o La Liga stats

Goals: 108 Apps: 145



Goals: 18    Apps: 41


It’s a win-win situation for Inter Milan even if you take away Eto'o from the deal. I am so happy for Italian football because maybe they lost Kaka but they got Eto'o and Inter fans were also happy with this deal specially after good start by Eto'o 2 apps, 2 goals.
