Jose Mourinho video: Did he know he was being filmed?

Published Add your comment

Jose Mourinho went on the offensive yesterday after he was apparently filmed making derogatory comments about striker Samuel Eto'o's age without his knowledge. 

Mourinho has been quoted as questioning Eto's age, and saying he doesn't have enough firepower in attack.

Speaking yesterday he blasted the journalist from French station Canal+, calling him a 'disgrace' before telling the assembled reporters at a press conference before him that they should be 'embarrassed' for their profession over the incident.

However Canal+ came back at the Chelsea boss last night with a statement of their own.

In it, they claimed that Mourinho was fully aware that he was being filmed.

Reports have suggested that Eto'o, who was bought to Chelsea by Mourinho in the summer from Russia, is furious with his boss over the controversy. 

The French station also suggest that Mourinho is using the claim that he was unaware he was being filmed as a decoy after being caught out.

Well, now you can make your own mind up; the video of the Chelsea boss saying what he did about Eto'o has been released.

Did he know what he was saying was being recorded? Watch the video above - and check out the subtitled version below - and have your say in the comments section.
