Ajaccio star Eduardo says strike partner Adrian Mutu is a great player who adds to their team both on and off the field.
The 33-year-old has enjoyed a chequered career to date, being ordered to pay over €17m [£13.5m] to former club Chelsea in 2008 after his contract with the club was cancelled following a failed drugs test for cocaine.
The striker then enjoyed spells at Juventus and Fiorentina before again failing a doping test in 2010.
The 75-capped international now finds himself at Ligue 1 side Ajaccio, after joining on a free transfer from Cesena in summer and Eduardo believes he is a great asset to the team.
"He is a good player, he has great quality," L'ours team-mate Eduardo told RMC Sport, after both players were on the score-sheet in their side's 4-4 draw with Lorient.
"We see that he is still not 100 per cent physically. He brings his experience. His goal was something that not everyone could do.
"He expresses himself a lot in the dressing room, even though he doesn't speak French.
"This is a great player."
