Newcastle striker Cisse: Eto'o my hero

Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse admits Anzhi star Samuel Eto'o is his hero.

The two teams face-off tomorrow night in the Europa League.

Cisse told the Evening Chronicle: "He's an idol for me. Samuel is an extraordinary player and somebody who has played at the very top level for club and country. He's one of the best attackers in the game. Samuel is somebody I have known for a long time and a person who I have a great deal of respect for.

"My job is to win games for Newcastle - and I hope we win the games and get through."
