Samuel Eto'o reveals he wants to quit Chelsea in the summer, and eyes move to Mallorca
The Cameroonian scored a hat-trick against Manchester United on Sunday
Tuesday 21 January 2014
Chelsea’s hat-trick hero Samuel Eto’o has revealed he wants to leave in the summer and return to Real Mallorca.
The Cameroon striker, who grabbed all three goals in Chelsea’s 3-1 victory over Manchester United on Sunday, played for Mallorca between 2000 and 2004, before joining Barcelona.
"I'll always like Barca, but I personally prefer Mallorca," Eto'o told Spanish radio station Cadena Cope. "My son has pressured me to finish (my career) there. My son is from Mallorca."
Gary Cahill believes Chelsea are “going about their business quietly” and, while it is difficult to win the Premier League by stealth, there is certainly an ominous feeling to their gathering form.
Something has clicked at Chelsea recently. Since their defeat at Sunderland in the Capital One Cup last month, they have been nearly immaculate, having the better of a 0-0 draw at Arsenal before winning six in a row, including Southampton and Hull City away, and Liverpool and Manchester United at home.
Chelsea are not quite playing the fluent football of Arsenal and Manchester City but that is not the point. They are looking likelier champions than they have done all season. The official line, from manager Jose Mourinho, who underwent minor surgery on an elbow yesterday, is that the title is City’s to lose, but Cahill sounded confident enough.
“If we can stay consistent, which at the moment we are, we have a good feeling among the group and we’re going about our business quietly,” the defender said. “Arsenal and Man City are not dropping points either, but this was a great win for us.”
