Barcelona legend, Samuel Eto'o has opened up on striker, Sergio Aguero moving to the Nou Camp from Manchester City on a free transfer and joining his fellow countryman and good friend, Lionel Messi in Spain.

Aguero left City after a decade where he established himself as a legend and their all-time record goalscorer and Eto'o believes that the Argentinian superstar duo will be unstoppable on the field next season.

“We’re going to see 60 goals every season. I only hope that God protects them from any more injuries," he said, as quoted by Marca.

The 40-year-old who played alongside Messi at the Camp Nou for five years between 2004 and 2009, knows all about the record six-time Ballon d'Or award winner - going on admit that he has nothing but praise for the Argentinian's character.

"I told Messi once that the goals he'd score would make him unique. He's a God. He always listened to me, said nothing and put my advice into practice. So often I want to climb into the TV and celebrate his goals with him because of how beautiful they are."

The 33-year-old's future at Barcelona has been a source of speculation throughout the past year, though it was recently reported that the player has in principle accepted the club's proposal to extend his contract, though the striker is yet to sign the deal offered by the management.
