Cameroon and Anzhi Makhachkala striker Samuel Eto'o hopes he can play again under the guidance of former coach Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.

The 32-year-old hitman, now with Russian giants Anzhi, enjoyed a successful short spell with Mourinho at Italian giants Inter Milan.

Since he currently faces being axed due Anzhi's current financial problems, joining the London-Based club could be the the Indomitable Lions attacker's next destination.

"There is only one Jose Mourinho. I have played under a lot of great coaches - but there is no other character in the game like Jose," Eto'o told the Daily Mirror.

"He is one of the best coaches in the world - and we had a lot of success together at Inter Milan. I would like to have the chance to play under him again - because it is never boring when Jose is around.

"Of course Chelsea are a great team - and when we have all the offers on the table then I will discuss with my agent and see what my next step is," the former Real Madrid and Barcelona player added.

Mourinho has rejoined Chelsea this summer after an unsuccessful short spell with Real Madrid.

Since Joining Anzhi from Inter in 2011, Eto'o has scored 25 goals in 51 appearances.
