Chelsea ace Samuel Eto'o admits manager Jose Mourinho can at time "lose his mind". Rumours persist that Eto'o, who is on a one-year contract, is still furious with Mourinho for off-the-record comments questioning his age that were leaked by a French TV station and is determined to leave at the end of the season.
The 33-year-old said: "My 'problem with Mourinho'? Don't talk about it. I score goals. I have not stopped doing it but I cannot do that if I stay on the sidelines. Even though I am old, I still know how to score."
Asked how Mourinho differs from other managers he has played under, Eto'o said: "This is a difficult question. There is something in his approach to a match that the others don't have but I cannot say because we want to win the Champions League. He becomes someone else in the build-up to matches. Like any human being, he sometimes loses his mind. He proved it like when he did it with me [by calling me old] but he takes all the pressure on himself."
