Samuel Eto’o thanks fans for birthday wishes, Chelsea striker confirms he is 33

After scoring the opener on Saturday against Tottenham, Samuel Eto’o pulled out the now famous “old man” celebration, much to the delight of Stamford Bridge.

Last month, one of the tabloids suggested Eto’o was not 33 but in fact 39 and this was pretty much the perfect way to hit back.

Yesterday was Samuel Eto’o’s birthday and he received plenty of congratulations from Chelsea supporters and fans of previous clubs.

On Sunday Eto’o was at the Anzhi game, watching his former club beat Rubin Kazan and judging by the Instagram picture above, the Cameroon striker was somewhere fancy for his birthday.

Eto’o added the following message to the Instagram picture: “Dear All, Thank you very much for all the birthday wishes. It means the world to me. 33…Jesus Christ Age. SEF.”
