Jose Mourinho confirmed Samuel Eto’o could be available for Chelsea’s clash with Paris Saint-Germain after returning to practice on Monday.
Eto’o has been side-lined with injury since being subbed after 10 minutes against Arsenal and also missed the first leg in Paris.
Mourinho, however, is hopeful that the 33-year-old can lead Chelsea’s comeback to overturn the 3-1 first leg deficit on Tuesday.
“Fit-fit, I don’t think he is. But play (against PSG)? Maybe. Maybe,” the Portuguese said.
“Will Eto'o be fit? Let's see. Maybe he could play but to risk a player you need to have minimum conditions to take that risk.
"If you think he's going to be out after 10 minutes of the game you can't take that risk. If there is a minimum of risk, then yes.
"We need to score goals. If we don't score a minimum of two goals we are out. We know that, so if we can have everybody available who can give us a chance to score goals then let's do that."
Eto’o has scored 11 goals in all competitions for Chelsea this season, all coming at Stamford Bridge, and is with 30 Champions goals Mourinho’s most experienced striker.
