Cole and Eto’o leave Chelsea but veteran Schwarzer stays


LONDON: England defender Ashley Cole and Cameroon striker Samuel Eto’o have left Chelsea but former Australia goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has signed a new one-year deal, the club said in a statement on Tuesday. Eto’o and Cole, both 33, had been expected to leave the English Premier League side after their contracts came to an end last month. Cole spent eight seasons at Chelsea after joining from Arsenal. Eto’o arrived from Russian team Anzhi Makhachkala, scoring nine goals in 21 league appearances in his one season at Stamford Bridge. Schwarzer, 41, made 13 appearances for the club last season after joining on a free transfer from Fulham. In December he became the oldest player to make his debut in the Champions League when he featured against Steaua Bucharest.
