Legendary Inter attacker Samuel Eto’o has sang the praises of former Inter manager Jose Mourinho, who had a highly memorable spell in charge of the club.

Mourinho took charge of Inter in the Summer of 2008 and in his first season in charge the Portuguese tactician, who is now in charge of Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur, led Inter to a Serie A and Italian super cup double.

In his second and what proved to be final season with the club, Mourinho lead Inter to an achievement no other Italian club has ever achieved, a treble consisting of the Serie A title, Coppa Italia and Champions League.

“Mourinho is a special coach. There aren’t any like him, that’s why it’s called Special One. Absolutely deserved nickname,” Eto’o explained in an interview with Russian news outlet Sport24.ru.

Eto’o then went on to dismiss the idea that the Inter side that won the Champions League were an average team in comparison to a typical Champions League winning side: “Inter has never been an average club! They are the biggest club in Italy. It is logical that with such a team Mourinho won the Champions League.”

Eto’o spent two years with Inter between 2009 and 2011 and in his time with the club the former Cameroonian national team player scored 53 goals and tallied 25 assists in 102 appearances across all competitions.
