Well, it might surprise many football fans that the best coach Samuel Eto'o played under is neither Jose Mourinho or Pep Guardiola. According to Samuel Eto'o, his favorite coach was the late Luis Aragonés.

Samuel Eto'o said;

"The best coach I had? It is difficult to choose one, but if I have to choose one, it's Luis Aragonés who now rests in peace. While I was a player at Mallorca. I had a talk in his office that changed my life.

He said that I had done everything at Mallorca and told me to go to another club to see what my real level was. Luis had a lot of personality, but I knew how to play with that personality. He was like a father to me. It would be a great honor to be a coach like him."
