Chelsea striker Eto'o shocked by 'physical English football'

Chelsea summer signing Samuel Eto'o admits he's still adjusting to life in England.Jose Mourinho has blamed Eto'o's sub-standard performances on having spent two years playing at a lower level in the Russian League with Anzhi, but the Cameroon international is refusing to panic and is confident he will return to form.

He told Chelsea Magazine: "Already I have noticed that English football is very physical - more physical than other types of football.

"It hasn't been too much time yet, so I need to continue working to make sure I keep improving my level. Every game here is important and I realise that - I have come here to enjoy playing for Chelsea and to enjoy the football. I go into every game with the same approach.

"It doesn't matter where you put me, I will play football. My team-mates are helping me a lot and also the coaches, so I feel that I am settling into the team."
