Jose Mourinho was left to bemoan missed chances after a 1-1 draw at Galatasaray and urged Chelsea's fans to generate their own red-hot atmosphere in the return leg.

Chelsea duo Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba have both shrugged off Mourinho's recent comments about his lack of strikers. Blues manager Mourinho's supposed 'secret' comments came to light earlier this week when he was caught on camera saying: "I have a team but no striker. It is not possible for us to win the Premier League." Mourinho also suggested 32-year-old Eto'o could be as old as 35 with other reports later emerging which claimed the Cameroon international may even be 39. Eto'o was a late substitute in Turkey and both players insisted after the game that there were no issues with Mourinho over his comments. Eto'o told Sky Sports News: "I am Samuel Eto'o, what can I say? If at 36 and 37 I can score three goals at Manchester City it means that I still have some juice and I can even score until I am 50. "But I really don't care, what is really important to me is to give my maximum to the team, to help them to win some titles." Ba said: "I am feeling good. The relationship is OK - there is nothing exciting to tell you. I just keep smiling, keep fighting, keep training well and things will come. "That's probably the way he (Mourinho) thinks; I have my way to think as well and - nothing special - I don't have an issue with anyone."
