The team won the Scudetto, Coppa Italia, and the Champions League in the previous season. Along with Gianluca Pagliuca, Marco Materazzi, and Wesley Sneijder, he was inducted into the 2021 wall of fame.
"Thank you Inter Milan for the wonderful honor of inducting me into the Inter Hall Of Fame in 2021," the now-40-year-old said on his official social media account.
"With Marco Materazzi, Gianluca Pagliuca, and Wesley Sneijder, I'm in wonderful company. [Black and Blue] is something I'm quite proud of."

Eto'o also assisted the team in winning the Supercoppa Italiana in 2010, the Champions League title in 2009/10, and the Fifa Club World Cup in 2010.
