Apparently Samuel Eto’o didn’t get over the unguarded “age” comment targetted at him by Jose Mourinho few months back. I promised not to write about the Chelsea boss in the next few months, but how can you stop talking about a person who has “rented a space” in the spotlight.
The 33-year-old during a short interview with africanfootball.com labelled his coach a fool and NO it didn’t sound like a slip of the tongue.
“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.
He continued, “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.”
With that said, you can be sure that the days of the Cameroonian who scored 12 goals at Stamford Bridge this season are numbered. This drama will be incomplete without a Special response from the Special One. But can someone hint him of the latest development?
