Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o: Shruged off Jose Mourinho's comments

Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o: Shruged off Jose Mourinho's comments

Blues manager Mourinho's supposed 'secret' comments came to light earlier this week when he was caught on camera saying: "I have a team but no striker. It is not possible for us to win the Premier League."

Mourinho also joked that 32-year-old Eto'o could be as old as 35, with other reports later emerging which claimed the Cameroon international may even be 39.

Eto'o was a late substitute for Spanish forward Fernando Torres in the 1-1 Champions League draw at Galatasaray on Wednesday, while Senegal striker Ba was an unused substitute in Turkey.

Both players insisted after the game that there were no issues with Mourinho over his comments.

Eto'o told Sky Sports News: "I am Samuel Eto'o, what can I say? If at 36 and 37 I can score three goals at Manchester United (Eto'o scored a hat-trick in the 3-1 win over Manchester United) it means that I still have some juice and I can even score until I am 50.

"But I really don't care, what is really important to me is to give my maximum to the team, to help them to win some titles."

Ba said: "I am feeling good. The relationship is OK - there is nothing exciting to tell you. I just keep smiling, keep fighting, keep training well and things will come.

"That's probably the way he (Mourinho) thinks; I have my way to think as well and - nothing special - I don't have an issue with anyone."

@ Paulino971 Charlton with the rich new Danish or Belgian owners, should help.

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
