Chelsea striker Eto'o responds to Mourinho questioning his true age

Striker Samuel Eto'o is unconcerned about the leaked remarks from Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho questioning his age. Mourinho was filmed making comments in private by French broadcaster Canal Plus saying: "The problem with Chelsea is I lack a striker. Eto'o is 32 years old, maybe 35, who knows?"

Eto'o told Sky Sports News after Wednesday's 1-1 draw with Galatasaray in the Champions League: "If at 36 and 37 I can score three goals at Manchester United it means that I still have some juice and I can even score until I am 50.

"But I really don't care; what is really important to me is to give my maximum to the team, to help them to win some titles."
