Samuel Eto’o pokes fun at Jose Mourinho again

Samuel Eto’o used Cameroon’s encounter with Germany on Sunday to once again mock Jose Mourinho for comments the Chelsea manager made about the striker’s age earlier in the season.

Eto’o scored in the 2-2 draw against Joachim Low’s side, one of the favourites to clinch the World Cup in Brazil, and poked fun at Mourinho during his goal celebration; hunching over to resemble an elderly man, and using the corner flag as a mock walking stick.

This was the second time Eto’o had celebrated in this manner, and comes as a result of remarks Mourinho had been caught making back in February, with the Stamford Bridge boss having suggested the forward is older than he actually claims to be.

Eto’o, who has since been released by Chelsea, took exception to this and initially displayed his displeasure with the same goal celebration during the crushing defeat of Tottenham in March.

The former Barcelona and Inter Milan centre-forward later directed a personal attack at Mourinho, branding the Portuguese a “fool”. It comes as little surprise, then, that Chelsea did not take the option to extend the one year deal Eto’o signed last summer.

During his solitary campaign as a Chelsea player, Eto’ scored 12 times in 34 appearances.
