Chelsea boss Mourinho: Intelligent Eto'o will get better and better

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was delighted with two-goal Samuel Eto'o after their Champions League win over Schalke.

The striker looks much sharper than when he first arrived from Anzhi Makhachkala in August and he ran straight to his manager to celebrate and Mourinho seemed keen to take some of the credit as they shared a joke.

"It was not a surprise for me that he arrived here not in the best condition after two years in Anzhi," said Mourinho.

"Now, step by step, he's growing. He's 32, but fit and slim. Not a heavy boy. He's intelligent of course. Goals give confidence. The first one was a 'fox' goal. The second goal was a very good collective goal: Willian's choice was fantastic, Ramires' run to give him an extra option was fantastic, and Samuel's movement was excellent."
