Eto’o calls Mourinho ‘a fool’


ETOO-SCHALKELONDON, England, March 15- Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o has suggested Jose Mourinho is a fool and also hinted that he might not be at Stamford Bridge next season.

The 33-year-old joined Chelsea prior to the 2013/14 campaign on a one-year deal and it does not look like he will be extending his stay in west London

The Blues boss controversially joked about Eto’o’s age back in February, saying in footage released by French television station Canal Plus: “The problem with Chelsea is I lack a striker. I have Eto’o but he is 32 years old, maybe 35, who knows?”

And it seems the Cameroon international has not forgotten about the Portuguese tactitian’s jibe and told AfricanFootball: “Today, I am 33 years old.

“And it is not because a fool called me an old man that you must believe it. And you may have noticed that the old man was better than the youngsters.

“Some believe I am going to retire in the United States or in the Middle East, but I have regained the joy of the Champions League and I am going to carry on playing in the Champions League.

“Where? I am not going to tell you. But I am going to carry on playing because physically and mentally I feel great.

“So I am going to go to this World Cup and to the next one when I will be 37. Some did it at 42, so I can still play in two more World Cups.”
