One of the best strikers the world has ever seen, Africa’s own Samuel Eto’o is in South Africa to launch the newest version of Africa 5s.

Tendai Ndoro of Highlands Park was one of five local players including Lebohang Manyama, Aubrey Ngoma, Bernard Parker and Thusa Phala who got to have lunch with Eto’o on Sunday and was blown away by meeting the world football legend.
 
 “What a huge honour to meet a genuine legend who I’ve watched play in the biggest teams in the world. Who has played in a World Cup, has played in an Afcon, has dominated on the biggest stages! And yet still so humble.” Said Ndoro.
 
 “Obviously all of us were excited to interact with him, and the man has so many stories. I asked him who the best player was he ever played with and he said very quickly that it was Andres Iniesta. I asked him who the best manager he ever worked with was and he said Pep Guardiola. And knowing he played for some very big teams I asked him which was best and he said Barcelona. Some might not be happy with that answer (laughing).”
 
“He really had me laughing when he said that this one manager tried to play him out of position as a left winger. So he just decided to come inside the field and said the team operated without a left winger for the first half, and he played striker where he belongs and scored three goals, so the coach couldn’t say anything about it at halftime (laughing).”
 
Ndoro said that the local players also shared some of their own stories about playing football in the PSL. “He asked about our training methods and preparation and said he could not believe how long our training sessions were. He said when he played, training at the big clubs was an hour long and that included stretching! It never dragged on for more than that. So when I said sometimes we in South Africa get to training at 9am and only finish at like 12, he couldn’t believe it and said it was crazy. We all laughed a lot and it was an amazing experience.”
 
It’s not clear yet if Ndoro’s training sessions have got any shorter since this conversation with Eto’o, but it was clear that the meeting with the legend has left a huge impression.

Posing in pictures and selfies and hogging tabloids is the only thing Ndoro knows best, he was always posting videos and selfies while still at Pirates and the team was being hammered 6 -0, 6-1...please let your feet do the talking in the field of play and maybe just maybe you too can be counted as a legend one day not a player who took Ajax to relegation.
