The renowned striker Samuel Eto’o said about his former mentor, Jose Mourinho:
“First of all Jose is a friend. He is sincere, if he doesn’t like something, he’ll tell you about it. We both have a strong temperament, and we understood each other.
He’s one of the best people I have ever met in football. People put up his controversial personality, but it’s a lie. In life and football is hypocrisy, and many people prefer to have honest people.
Mourinho – top. Another thing is that he only cares about the result. That’s how he sees football, and in this sense it is number one. In his game Mourinho can’t beat.
Mourinho is a winner and a natural leader. He tells you the right words. He is great.”
Eto’o worked with Mourinho at inter and Chelsea.
