Eto'o is a team player, says Mou

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has sung the praises of Samuel Eto'o calling the Inter striker a great team player.

Mourinho persuaded Eto'o to play out wide on many occasions last season often as an auxiliary full-back and it helped Inter win the treble.

"Eto'o is a team guy, which is the most important thing in football," Mourinho said.

"If the team needs to defend, he defends. If the team need to fight, he fights."

Eto'o has been just as important this season, scoring 34 goals in all competitions.
