Chelsea boss Mourinho: Eto'o just brilliant

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was full of praise for Samuel Eto'o after his goal in victory over Tottenham.

Eto'o turns 33 today.

"Eto'o was brilliant," said Mourinho. "You can speak about (Jan) Vertonghen's mistake but it was only Vertonghen's mistake because Eto'o is there. If Eto'o does not read the situation the defender or the goalkeeper will get the ball.

"He's not a 20 years old super-fast player like he was 10 years ago, so he needs to be close to the goal, he needs his feet in the box and he's very intelligent in the way he moves."
