Inter Milan striker Eto'o: Chelsea clash not about personalities

Inter Milan striker Samuel Eto'o says their Champions League clash at Chelsea will not be about personalities.

Most of the hype in the run-up to Tuesday's clash is about Jose Mourinho's return to face his former club, but Eto'o has dismissed any sentiment and insists Inter will be focused on qualifying.

He said: "This not a duel between Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti or between Samuel Eto'o and Didier Drogba. It is between Chelsea and Inter.

"Mourinho going back to Chelsea is a big thing for him but he is very professional and will be prepared for the situation.

"I had the same thing when I went back to the Camp Nou during the group stages earlier this season.

"I think this is a game where there will be goals - and we are determined to prevail."
