The former member of FC Barcelona has revealed that he hated José Mourinho before working with him at the inter Milan. Samuel Eto’o, then striker of the Catalan club, had made the confidence to his relatives that he would never play for the Portuguese.
But when they found themselves at Inter Milan in 2009-2010 at the inter Milan, the club that won the historic treble, the opinion of Pichichi on Mourinho has changed radically:
“Before I met him at Inter, I did not know personally, our relationship was tense,” says Eto’o to Le Soleil. I even once said that I would never play in a club where Jose coached. But God knows better. He wanted to show me that I was wrong and today, Jose is a friend and he is my coach again when I was Chelsea. “
Arrived at Chelsea in 2013 for 7 million euros from Anzhi Makhachkala, after the failure of the signing of Wayne Rooney, the Cameroonian has often been accused of having a strong influence that hinders, which contributed to his leaving Barcelona in 2009. However his commitment to the side of José Mourinho at inter was flawless because he often played out of his position.
The Indomitable Lion also revealed that he was closely linked to Chelsea in 2006, before Andriy Shevchenko was finally committed to 30 million euros.
