Mourinho reiterated his love of the west London club but said he would fill any vacancy in English football if the chance arose.

The Portuguese won back-to-back titles with Chelsea in 2005 and 2006 and remains an immensely popular figure with the club’s fans.

But his love for English football is also strong and he would not turn down the opportunity to take the reigns of a Premier League rival if it meant a return to this country.

“In England I am blue. I will push a little but when I watch matches on TV,” he told Sky Sports News.

“I cannot deny what is clear in my mind. After Real Madrid, England, that’s for sure. I keep saying the same, I know clearly.

“In England (I could manage) everyone. I am blue, but I am London blue. I am a professional.”

Jose Mourinho has always been a contentious figure, so much so that it’s not even surprising to hear of talk of his possible exit from the Bernabeu just months after he led Real Madrid to a La Liga title. There has been a great of speculation about in-fighting at the club with Cristiano Ronaldo apparently ‘unhappy‘ and Sergio Ramos frozen out after clashing with the Portuguese boss.

The new season has not started well for Real Madrid with the Spanish giants losing two of their opening four matches and seen Barcelona already open up an eight point lead over their arch rivals.

Mourinho’s decision to openly state his interest in a return to the Premier League and his defiant stance at being a ‘London blue’ may not best please Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.

Real Madrid got back to winning ways with a last gasp win over Man City in the Champions League but one does wonder what the future holds for Mourinho in the long run. Would Roman Abramovich welcome back the former Blues boss? It’s clear that Chelsea fans hold a soft spot for their former manager and clearly he was a big success during his tenure at the helm of the West London club.

The 49 year old spent three and a bit years in charge of Chelsea and helped them to secure two Premier League titles, two League Cup triumphs and an FA Cup win to boot before he left in September 2007 by ‘mutual consent’.
