Chelsea confirm Eto'o capture

Chelsea announced Thursday that the club has signed Cameroon striker Samuel Eto'o from Russian side Anzhi on a one-year deal.

The move reunites Eto'o with Jose Mourinho, who managed the Cameroon international during their time at Inter Milan.

"I am very happy to be here, but also anxious because I want to get playing as soon as possible," Eto'o told Chelsea's official website. "It wasn't a hard decision. I saw the qualities Chelsea have, and I was very happy with Jose Mourinho before, so when the opportunity came, I was very happy to take it."

Eto'o, 32, has claimed three UEFA Champions League trophies and four league titles from his spells at Barcelona and Inter Milan and has represented Cameroon at three FIFA World Cups.
