Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho has warned Samuel Eto'o he must fight his way back into the first team.

Eto'o has been left on the bench since returning from the African Nations Cup.

"Today it's not easy to be my striker, partly because of what the others are doing," Mourinho said. "Eto'o cannot think that he is at a red light and that he simply has to wait for it to change, not with me."
