Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o, has stated that he does not have to explain anything about his age.
A private conversation in which Blues boss Jose Mourinho, made fun of the Cameroonian’s age was leaked this week. “The problem with Chelsea is we lack a scorer. I have one [Eto’o] but he’s 32. Maybe 35, who knows?” Mourinho joked.
After Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Galatasaray, Eto’o was asked about his manager’s comments and he told Mediaset: “I do not have to explain anything.
“I triumphed with all the teams I played for, I’m the player I am and I want to help Chelsea to win a cup this season.”
Speaking on the draw in Istanbul, when he came off the bench but could not find the winner, Eto’o said: “It’s a good result for us. In the return leg, however, we must be very careful and take advantage of the home advantage. We need a goal to qualify.”
