Chelsea boss Mourinho may risk Eto’o for PSG clash

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is considering whether to risk Samuel Eto’o for Tuesday’s Champions League quarter-final second leg against Paris St. Germain, reports ESPN.


Samuel Eto’o


In recent weeks, Mourinho has been openly critical of the performances of Fernando Torres, who played in Saturday’s win over Stoke City with Eto’o absent due to a hamstring injury which also kept him out of the first leg against the French champions, which the Blues lost 3-1.


Mourinho has also been reluctant to hand Demba Ba a place in the Chelsea starting line-up, and with Eto’o the club’s highest scoring striker this season, the Portuguese is looking to do everything he can to get the 33-year-old fit enough to play a part at Stamford Bridge.


Asked about the possibility of Eto’o returning for the game, Mourinho said: "Maybe I will pick him. To risk a player you need to have minimum conditions. If you think he's going to be out after 10 minutes of the game you can't take that risk.


"If there is a minimum of conditions of risk, then, yes, I will pick him. We need to score goals. If we don't score a minimum of two goals, we are out. We know that. If we can have everybody available who can give us a chance to score goals, then let's do that.


"I wanted Eto'o to be on the bench on Saturday [against Stoke] and play 15 or 20 minutes but he was not fit enough. He did not train with the team on Sunday, so we have to see."
