Give some credit to the New York Times for funding their soccer writer, Jack Bell, on his trip to Barcelona to interview Samuel Eto'o.* But to what do we chalk up Bell not knowing how many African Footballer of the Year awards Eto'o has won?
Did the scribe hire a d-list translator or just get his facts wrong? Whatever it is, it creates the best moment in an otherwise lackluster sitdown.
*Correction made to earlier post mistakenly citing Paris as the site of the interview.
