“I have no strikers” – Mourinho caught criticizing Torres and questioning Eto’o’s age

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, was an angry man yesterday, after footage of him slamming his strikers found its way into public space. The Portuguese’s remarks about Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto’o and Demba Ba were captured by French TV company Canal+, when the former Real Madrid boss attended Hublot’s sponsorship launch last week. Mourinho believed he was having a private chat with senior representatives of the Swiss company, but to his shock, he was being filmed. “I have a team but no striker,” Mourinho said. “It is not possible for us to win the Premier League. “We have Samuel Eto’o. Yes, Eto’o. but he is 32, maybe even 35, I don’t know.” However, in what he thought was the official interview with Canal+, Mourinho denied that the club would swap Eden Hazard for Edinson Cavani and ruled out a move for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He also confirmed that Paris Saint-Germain wanted him to take over after he left Madrid. “I did not say yes or no – I did not receive a direct offer,” he continued. “We have a relationship. But I don’t want to feed false questions – I want to stay. I have four years left on my contract and then we will see.”
