UPDATE-(SPORTS)SAMUEL ETO’O,HAS NO HARD FEELINGS TOWARDS JOSE MOURINHO,AFTER THE BANTER ABOUT HIS AGE…

Everton’s latest signing, Samuel Eto’o, has no hard feelings towards former manager Jose Mourinho.

Eto’o, who will line up against Chelsea this weekend, admitted Mourinho’s bants about his age hurt, but he had moved past it.

Recalling the incident on his arrival at Goodison Park, Eto’o said: “It annoyed me and disturbed me a little. Sometimes I would say to myself: ‘Why?’ But the most important thing is what you do on the ball. It was a mistake [to concentrate on my age] and I just got my head down and worked.

“I don’t know if Jose criticised my form. It is true he said something that came out very clumsily in the press but I don’t think he wanted to do me harm. I have great respect for him because he gave me the opportunity to come to Chelsea. I had a lot to offer them but for whatever reason it didn’t work out.

“The only thing I have to say about Jose is that I want to thank him for giving me my opportunity in English football. It is down to him that I have had the chance to play and integrate into the Premier League. That is the end of the matter. Of course I will shake his hand. I have no problem with Jose.”
