Eto'o out to prove Mourinho wrong

Cape Town - Samuel Eto'o, who is now a free agent, has made it clear that he is interested in a move to Arsenal, after his former Chelsea manager angered him with rude comments about his age.
The Cameroon international is now out for revenge and hopes the Emirates will be the place from which to plot it.
Arsenal are looking to strengthen their squad with a few more attacking players, and while there is interest in signing Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata, one striker will not be enough for Wenger and Eto'o may very well be an option for the Gunners.
The 33-year-old openly mocked Mourinho with a goal celebration and later called him a "fool" and a "puppet", after the Blues boss had made comments that he thought Eto'o was older than he actually was.
According to the Mirror, Chelsea wanted to keep the striker, but after Mourinho's comments Eto'o is now set to leave the club. With numerous offers coming in from clubs including MLS and the Middle East, Eto'o is still adamant that the only club he wants to join is Arsenal.
With Nicklas Bendtner leaving on a free transfer, Arsene Wenger is another man down and will have to add other options to the likes of Morata and Loic Remy who he is already tracking as possible additions to his squad.
Eto'o believes he is the man to do the job for the Gunners, and the added incentive of trying to prove his former boss wrong could be extra motivation for the striker.
