Eto'o is not in Barcelona's plans for the new season

Cameroon and Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o has said he is in no rush to make a decision over his future.

Last week Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola said that Eto'o is not part of his plans for the coming season.

"I am 27 years old now, and need to weigh my options well enough in my next move," said Eto'o in Kampala on Tuesday.

He said although he has enjoyed a good time with Barcelona and won trophies, he would want to play first team football.

Eto'o is a target for many teams in Italy and England.

The three-time African Footballer of the Year is spending three days in Uganda and Kenya with former Cameroon goalkeeper Thomas Nkono, holding football coaching clinics with young people.
