Comments which Jose Mourinho would have preferred remained confidential appeared in the media this week. The Chelsea manager claims that he was unaware he was being filmed when he said Samuel Eto'o "is 32, possibly 35, who knows?"
Now it has emerged that the Cameroon striker might be even older.
Anna Barranca, an ex-girlfriend of Eto'o told The Sun:
I think Samuel is not 35 he is more 39. Samuel was born in 1974 and so that makes him 39 now.
It is very evident Samuel was older than the age he said he was when he first came to Europe.
Barranca says that she was told this by a friend who grew up with the striker in Cameroon.
However, a Chelsea source told The Sun that Eto'o is definitely 32 as stated on his passport.
