Keita hopes to add to the list of African CL winners

Barca will field Mali’s Seydou Keita, Cote D”Ivoire’s Yaya Toure and Cameroun’s Samuel Eto’o. If they win, they join a select group of African CL winners. Eto’o would become a double winner.
Bruce Grobbelaar and Craig Johnston (Liverpool FC) in 1984, Rabah Madjer (FC Porto) in 1987, Abédi Ayew (Olympique de Marseille) in 1993, Nwankwo Kanu and Finidi George (AFC Ajax) in 1995, Samuel Kuffour (FC Bayern München) in 2001,
Benni McCarthy (FC Porto) in 2004, Djimi Traore (Liverpool FC) in 2005 and Samuel Eto’o (FC Barcelona) in 2006.

Seydou Keita talks about what this win would mean:
SK: Of course it will be a great achievement for me. The Malian people are waiting for this success and a lot of Africans want us to win because there are three Africans at Barcelona. To be named alongside players like Abedi Pele, Kanu and Eto’o is something every African football will cherish and I am keen to join the great group of African players who have won the title.
