Barcelona's Samuel Eto'o sought yesterday to quell tensions raised by his public criticism of coach Frank Rijkaard and his teammate Ronaldinho.
During a training session yesterday there appeared to be no hard feelings between Eto'o and Ronaldinho as the two players were photographed hugging.
Earlier, Eto'o denied calling the Barcelona coach "a bad person".
"It's a lie to say I called Rijkaard a bad person. Those who love controversy want to say that," he said.
"I didn't explode, I responded to what was being said about me."
He explained that he refused to play on Sunday in a 2-0 win over Racing Santander even though he turned out the previous weekend in the 0-0 draw against Osasuna, because he did not have time to warm up properly.
"For my knee to be operational I need to warm up for 15 minutes longer than the other players," the three-time African Player of the Year explained. "But this doesn't interest people, the only thing that interests them is controversy."
Meanwhile, Rijkaard and sporting director Txiki Begiristain were due to meet yesterday to discuss Eto'o's public outburst.
It had provoked transfer speculation, with the Spanish media suggesting a move to Juventus - or even a return to Real Madrid. - BBC
