Etoo loves to travel, in a past interview, he said, "I am a lover of New York and Moscow made me think because it never sleeps. At two o'clock in the morning, there will always be a place open to eat or drink.

Moscow offers this possibility twenty-four hours. This city is changing all the time. The last time I went on vacation and they were raising a building where I lived.

A month and a half later, everything was almost finished. Like New York, people never stop I like this mentality there."

He holds the record for the highest number of appearances in La Liga by any African player. He was the first to win 2 European continental trebles.

He ranks second in scoring in the UEFA Champions League finals. He secured 4th position in the list of players winning trophies in two consecutive years with different teams after Marcel Desailly, Paulo Sousa, and Gerard PiquΓ©.

Etoo has suffered from racial abuse in a few games and had reacted to it by threatening to quit the game. He has been outspoken about his experience.
