Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o has launched another thinly-veiled verbal attack at Jose Mourinho - who was labelled a “fool” by the Cameroon international last week for questioning his age earlier this year - by calling him a “puppet”.

Eto’o is poised to leave Stamford Bridge this summer - his one-year contract expires in the next few weeks - but the former Barcelona and Inter Milan striker is not prepared to walk away from the west London outfit without having the final word.

When asked about his age and his relationship with Mourinho in an interview with, Eto’o said: "Contrary to what a puppet says about my age, I am still physically fit.

"At 33, I feel real good. I have proven that I could do better than youths."

It was reported in March that Eto’o has still not forgiven Mourinho, who was caught on camera questioning the African striker’s age. It now seems abundantly clear this is true, with the relationship between the two men now looking beyond repair.

Eto’o, who scored 12 goals in 34 appearances for the west London outfit including a hat-trick against Manchester United, is determined to carry on playing in the Champions League next season despite reports claiming he could be tempted to accept a lucrative move outside of Europe.

"I will continue at the top level. I will continue to play the Champions League,” he added. "My romance with this competition is far from over.

"I will not tell you where, but I will be at the top level.

"I am 33 and I have two World Cups to play.

"Before me there are other players who went on until the age of 41. So I can continue."
