Former Cameroon striker, Samuel Eto’o, has admitted that he is being made to suffer because of Barcelona’s poor results recently.
The Catalans are yet to win or score in this season’s Champions League.
They have suffered 3-0 defeats to both Bayern Munich and Benfica in their first two fixtures.
In LaLiga, Barca currently occupy the ninth spot with 12 points after seven games, five points behind leaders Real Madrid.
“Recently, Barcelona have made me suffer,” Eto’o was quoted as saying by Marca.
“These are tough times for those of us who love the club.
“It would be hard to accept group stage elimination in the Champions League. I still hope they can go through.”
Barcelona host Valencia after the international break, before facing Real Madrid on October 24.

Carlos Queiroz’s men will now take on Morocco in the AFCON last-8 on Sunday.
“Of course, I want to win something with the national team. It is my country, which I love the most. This trophy for me would be completely different, would be the closest to my heart,” Salah said at his post-match press conference after Egypt defeated Ivory Coast on Wednesday.
“We were close before to win this African Cup [in 2017], we gave it everything, but we were not lucky to win it. But it is ok, now we’re here in the new one.
“We have to fight for it, we’ve to give everything to win it and I am sure the players have the same feeling.”
