Chelsea boss Mourinho: I told my son, 'Don't do a Marshall!'

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho praised Samuel Eto'o for his role in Eden Hazard's controversial goal against Cardiff City. Mourinho scoffed at complaints from Cardiff that the goal should not have stood over the way Eto'o nicked the ball away from visiting goalkeeper David Marshall.

"Samuel did an intelligent action. When I arrived home the first thing I told my kid who likes to play goalkeeper was, 'See the goal and don't do that, eh?'

"If FIFA says that it's a foul, it's a foul but Samuel did well. Maybe the referee did wrong. But in my opinion, that should be allowed as it was for years."
