Samuel Eto’o has once again emphasised his desire to stay at Barcelona and admitted he would like to be playing alongside Thierry Henry next season.

The Cameroon striker as been linked with a number of clubs this summer, but he seems determined to stay at Camp Nou.

“I am tired of saying it. I have a contract and I am in control of the situation,” Eto’o told reporters.

“The club can’t get rid of me because of my contract and as we both want to continue anyway, there is nothing more to talk about.

“I am staying at Barcelona and I don’t know where these stories saying I’m going come from.”

As if to emphassise his commitment to the cause, Eto’o admits he would love to play alongside Thierry Henry, a player who has been constantly linked with a move to Barcelona.

“It seems every year this story comes up, but we will have to wait until he signs and then everyone will be able to give their opinion,” Eto’o continued.

“But Thierry is clearly one of the best players in the world and that is the type of player Barca is full of.

“Barca is one of the greatest clubs in the world and I want to have the very best players by my side and if someone here takes the decision that they want to sign him then he will be very well welcomed by all of us.”
