Samuel Eto'o: Has no issue with Jose Mourinho

Samuel Eto'o: Has no issue with Jose Mourinho

The Portuguese tactician was heard during a conversation about his lack of firepower at Stamford Bridge claiming that 32-year-old frontman Eto'o could be as old as 35.

The Cameroonian striker was offered the opportunity to reply following a UEFA Champions League outing at Galatasaray on Wednesday.

Eto'o was happy to joke about the issue with reporters, claiming he still has 'juice' and can keep scoring goals 'until I am 50'.

He went on to explain to beINSports that while he was disappointed not to start Chelsea's latest European outing, he has no axe to grind with his boss and will not be drawn into a debate regarding a discussion which Mourinho considered to be private.

Eto'o said: "I am Samuel Eto'o, to disturb me will take much more than this. I know my place and I won't reply.

"I would have liked to be in the starting XI so I am disappointed to be on the bench, but I respect the choice of the coach.

"I came to Chelsea mainly because of Jose, because we have a great friendship.

"Things happen in life and you have to face them. But it doesn't change the player I am and the career I have had.

"You want me to cause trouble by revealing all of my thoughts. I want us to go as far as possible in this competition and in peace."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
