Eto'o is out of contract at Stamford Bridge after a season-long stint following his move from Anzhi Makhachkala and looks to have signalled his departure with some disparaging remarks in recent weeks.

The 33-year-old was angered by Mourinho's comments earlier in the season when he appeared to question his official age and has now described the Portuguese as a 'puppet' after previously branding him a 'fool'.

"Contrary to what a puppet says about my age, I am still physically fit," he told the Confederation of African Football's official website.

"At 33, I feel real good. I have proven that I could do better than youths."

Eto'o scored 12 times last season as Chelsea finished third in the Premier League and reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

He is currently preparing for the upcoming World Cup and is confident he can still play for a top European team next season.

"I wish to also say that I am not going to the United States or to the Middle East," he said.

"I will continue at the top level. I will continue to play the Champions League.

"My romance with this competition is far from over. I will not tell you where, but I will be at the top level. I am 33 and I have two World Cups to play.

"Before me there are other players who went on until the age of 41. So I can continue."

After listening to Sergio Ramos, Iker Casillas, Bulldog Pepe, Cristiana, and now Gerre'tooic, I attempt to make sense of obviously the most mythical of all myths in world football; the lie that none of Moaninho's players have ever had one bad thing to say about him. Can we put that to rest now?

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
