Samuel Eto'o makes fun of Mourinho over age comments with 'old man' celebration

Chelsea striker and Cameroonian international Samuel Eto'o made fun of Blues manager, Jose Mourinho's recent uncomplimentary comments about his age with an 'old man' celebration after putting his side ahead in their 4-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

After putting his side ahead in the 56th minute, the striker who turns 33 on Monday turned to the corner flag, but slowed down putting his left hand on his backk and stooping immitating an elderly man. 

Mourinho made waves last month after footage of the Blues Manager was released in which he suggested that Eto'o may be older than he claims, a French TV channel released the footage of the interview.

As expected, his routine was warmy received by social media with loads of retweets and sharing going on.

Mourinho claims to have enjoyed Eto'o's  celebration, speaking to Sky Sports he said: “It was fantastic. We knew it, because he was preparing something.”

I think he's amazing. The way he copes with situation in the last couple of weeks, I think he's fantastic. And today I told him before the game: 'you are going to score for sure'”
