New Chelsea signing Samuel Eto'o may have to explain himself to a section of the Blues support in the first days of his Cobham stay.

New Chelsea signing Samuel Eto'o may have to explain himself to a section of the Blues support in the first days of his Cobham stay.

During his Barcelona days he branded the Blues ‚Äúpathetic‚ÄĚ, reports the Sunday Mirror.

Eto’o, 32, made his views clear after he scored Barca’s winner in a first-leg ­Champions League clash with Chelsea in February 2005.

Ahead of the return game, Eto‚Äôo said: ‚ÄúI would sooner sell groundnuts in my home village than play for a ¬≠pathetic club like ¬≠Chelsea.‚ÄĚ

His comments backfired, with the Londoners ­winning the return 4-2 for a 5-4 ­aggregate success.
