Roberto Carlos says Samuel Eto’o ‘always thinks of himself’.
Brazil legend Roberto Carlos has warned Chelsea their summer signing Samuel Eto’o is trouble.
Carlos played with Eto’o at Real Madrid before coaching the Cameroonian at Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala.
And the former left-back, now the boss at Turkish outfit Sivasspor, said: “I’ve known Eto’o since he was 16. He’s a good person and I’ve always liked him, but he always thinks of himself, not the group.
“It’s quite confusing and odd when a footballer, instead of playing, is interested in bringing in players who are his friends. He did everything at Anzhi, except play football.
“There were a few small problems in the dressing room with the arrival of Eto’o, which were resolved. His signing had to be explained to several players.
“Then there came a point when Samuel wanted to interfere in my work. He wanted to control the club, taking my place and that of the coach, Guus Hiddink.”
