Chelsea star Samuel Eto'o has found himself in hot water with the club's fans after a controversial tweet was posted on his Twitter account.

According to the Daily Mirror, a number of Chelsea fans slammed Eto'o after the Blues forward uploaded a picture of himself along with his "SE29" logo and the Sunderland 2-1 Chelsea scoreline onto his Twitter account.

One fan reportedly wrote "F**k off" in reply to the Eto'o tweet, while others were not sure whether it was meant as a joke or not.

One Twitter user named "Calculated Kalou" replied to Eto'o: "You're not fit to wear the shirt."

The picture, which was not taken from Chelsea's match against Sunderland, was posted two hours after the final whistle at the Stadium of Light.

Eto'o, who was replaced by Demba Ba mid-way through the second half of the 2-1 defeat in the Capital One Cup, endured another mediocre display up front for the Blues.

A Lee Cattermole own goal had given Chelsea the lead shortly after half-time, before an 88th minute Fabio Borini strike took the match to extra time.

Chelsea, who had been on top for most of the 90 minutes, were then pinned back by Gus Poyet's side in extra time.

And Ki sealed the win for Sunderland with less than 120 seconds remaining, firing low past Mark Schwarzer in the Chelsea net.
