Samuel Eto'o: Has reopened the rift with Cameroon team-mate Song
Anzhi Makhachkala striker Samuel Eto'o has reopened his rift with fellow Cameroonian Alex Song by claiming the Barcelona midfielder is not even among the best players in their country - let alone the world.
The two players have endured a strained relationship in the past, with Song having refused to shake hands with Eto'o ahead of an African Cup of Nations qualifier against Senegal in 2011.
Song, who joined Barca from Arsenal in the summer, was fined a reported £1,200 by Cameroon for the incident.
The pair had appeared to make peace but Eto'o suggested there is still tension when asked if there was a dispute between the "two stars".
"We are not involved in a conflict between two star players," Eto'o told Canal Plus.
"I am among the best players in the world and Song is not even among the best players in Cameroon."
