The indomitable Lions captain whose contract with Chelsea ends next month was speaking in an exclusive interview with the Confederation of African Football (CAF).
Asked about the true nature of his relations with the coach, José Mourinho, who once remarked that, he were old, Eto’o replied: “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.”
Eto’o maintains he is still strong and ready to continue playing high level football. “I wish to also say that I am not going to the United States or to the Middle East. I will continue at the top level. I will continue to play the Champions League,” he said
“My romance with this competition (Champions League) 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,” a confident Eto’o added.
Talking about the upcoming World Cup next month, Eto’o said Cameroon respect all her adversaries. “It is true that Brazil will be the most popular before its people and home fans, but I’m not scared of this team, we will not be scared of them,” he said
“In my career we have played against this team before. We beat the Brazilians at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney. There was a certain Ronaldinho in the team and many others. Eto’o is not scared. Cameroon is not scared,” concluded the Lions’ captain.
