Jose Mourinho calls private conversation taping 'a disgrace'

Jose Mourinho says it is a "disgrace that somebody is recording a private conversation" after he appeared to criticise his strikers in a video broadcast on French television.

The Chelsea manager says whoever recorded the conversation should be "embarrassed as a media professional", but says there is no rift between himself and Samuel Eto'o as he was he was joking when he made an unflattering comment about the Cameroonian forward's age.

Eto'o has only scored eight goals in 27 appearances since he arrived at Stamford Bridge last August, while fellow strikers Fernando Torres and Demba Ba have only managed 11 goals between them in all competitions.
