It's been revealed that Chelsea striker Samuel Eto'o enjoys collecting expensive cars and, bizarrely, mobile phones.

Most people only need one mobile phone in their lives - two at a push - but not the Cameroon international.

A friend of Eto'o has told The Sun that the experienced striker possesses multiple mobile phones for his multiple houses.

Does he realise they're not landlines?

Eto'o, though, has defended his unusual collecting habits.

"I like to have several because I can and I'm not hurting anyone," Eto'o was quoted as saying by Spanish newspaper Marca. "To make other people happy, you must first be happy yourself, and I am".

Marca also report that when Eto'o signed for Chelsea this summer, he ordered four high-end cars to arrive at the club's training headquarters in Cobham at a cost of €4.79m.

A Bugatti Veyron, an Aston Martin One-77, a Maybach Xenatec and an Aston Martin V12 Zagato are now apparently with the ex-Barcelona and Inter Milan forward in west London.

Who said footballers earn excessive amounts of money?
