Inter Milan hero Eto'o: Chelsea players bottled it

Inter Milan striker Samuel Eto'o says Chelsea players bottled Tuesday night's Champions League defeat.

Eto'o proved Inter's matchwinner at Stamford Bridge and was left unimpressed by Chelsea's performance.

Eto'o told The Sun: "I expected more from the Blues but think pressure and nerves affected their performance.

"I am so happy. I hadn't scored since December and this one was so important.

"I carried out Jose Mourinho's orders and, just like in last year's Champions League final for Barcelona against Manchester United, I was in the right place to score a vital goal.

"Mourinho's plans were perfect. No one could doubt our superiority. This match was sensational for me but I was sad about the red card for Drogba.

"I understand his frustration. This is another season when it is impossible for my brother Didi to win the Champions League."
