‘God is back and has a name...Messi’ – Eto'o lauds Barcelona's Clasico hero

The Argentine’s arresting performance at the Bernabeu has been applauded by the Cameroon and Blaugrana legend

Samuel Eto’o has joined the rest of the world to heap praises on Lionel Messi for his breath-taking performance against Real Madrid, saying "God is back and has a name...Messi".

The Argentine powered Barcelona to victory with a stunning brace against Zinedine Zidan’s men at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday.

Going into the game, he drew a blank versus Juventus in the Champions League in midweek, but his efforts saw him reach another landmark figure - his 500th goal for Barcelona in all competitions.

And the Cameroonian who played alongside Messi during his time at Camp Nou took to social media to laud the Clasico hero.
