Mourinho was filmed making comments in private by French broadcaster Canal Plus saying: "The problem with Chelsea is I lack a striker. Eto'o is 32 years old, maybe 35, who knows?"
Eto'o told Sky Sports News after Wednesday's 1-1 draw with Galatasaray in the Champions League: "If at 36 and 37 I can score three goals at Manchester United it means that I still have some juice and I can even score until I am 50.
"But I really don't care; what is really important to me is to give my maximum to the team, to help them to win some titles."
