Samuel Eto’o has insisted that he has nothing to prove at Chelsea, reports The London Evening Standard.

The four-time winner of the African Player of the Year also believes that winning a Premier League title with Chelsea would complete his career.

He told reporters: “I have nothing to show. I'm Samuel Eto'o and I do not think I have to show anything to anyone.” 

After a slow-start to life at Stamford Bridge, where he spent a lot of time on the bench, things have finally started to get going for Eto’o, including scoring a hat-trick against Manchester United, taking his Premier League tally to six.

“From the sidelines, I cannot show what I'm capable of. Jose knows what I can do on the pitch."

The Cameroonian has won twelve trophies in his time with Real Mallorca, Barcelona and Inter Milan, including three Champions League titles, and feels getting his 13th at Chelsea would be the icing on the cake.

“I had the chance to play in Spain, we won. I had the chance to play in Italy, we won. And I hope that, thanks to God, I will also win a title in England and I think my career will be complete.

Chelsea are still in the hunt for a treble, the Premier League, the FA Cup and the Champions League. Eto’o won an unlikely Champions League winners medal with Inter Milan under Jose Mourinho so will know anything is possible under the Portuguese boss as his newest club.
