Chelsea star: I will score goals aged 50

Chelsea striker Samuel Eto'o believes that his performances this season have shown that it doesn't matter how old people think he is.

The Cameroon international, who we all believe to be 32, was reportedly left angered after Blues' boss Jose Mourinho questioned - off-the-record - his age.

The Portuguese coach was recorded, in an interview broadcast by Canal Plus, as saying: "The problem with Chelsea is I lack a striker. Eto'o is 32 years old, maybe 35, who knows?"

However, speaking after Wednesday night's 1-1 draw with Galatasaray in the Champions League, Eto'o told Sky Sports News: "I am Samuel Eto'o, what can I say?

"If at 36 and 37 I can score three goals at Manchester United it means that I still have some juice and I can even score until I am 50.

"But I really don't care, what is really important to me is to give my maximum to the team, to help them to win some titles."

An ex-girlfriend of the Barcelona star claimed that Eto'o could be even older than Mourinho's guess of 35.

“I think Samuel is not 35 he is more 39. Samuel was born in 1974 and so that makes him 39 now,” Anna Barranca told The Sun. “It is very evident Samuel was older than the age he said he was when he first came to Europe.”
