The Portuguese has a long-running feud with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, but this doesn’t seem to have held him back form hinting at a future at the Emirates. The 52-year-old revealed this while speaking to famous Arsenal fan Piers Morgan at the GQ awards.
The former Real Madrid chief said to Morgan when asked about his future: “Well let me put it like this: one day I will leave Chelsea, and when I do I will continue living in London. There are a number of other opportunities for a manager in London – Fulham, QPR, West Ham, Spurs, the England national team… and Arsenal.”
He ruled out all but the final two, before adding: “So, Piers, we are left with two options, yes? Arsenal and the national team. For now I have given you what you wanted – a glimmer of hope.”
However, the North Londoners may not want Mourinho to take over at their club. His current club, Chelsea, have made a terrible start to the season, and look unlikely to defend their Premier League title. They even have the worst goal difference in the top flight, -5, despite having conceded the least goals in the division during the last campaign.
The Stamford Bridge outfit actually play Arsenal in their next league fixture. They dearly need to get a result from the game, and if they don’t it will put massive pressure on Mourinho’s position at the club.
