Real Madrid’s Jose Mourinho – I will return to manage in England

Jose Mourinho says he will return to English football when his reign as Real Madrid manager ends, but the Portuguese insists he is happy at the Bernabeu.

While the ex-Chelsea boss is contracted to Real until 2016, he feels his next job will be back in the Premier League.

“I just say openly that, for many reasons, after this the next step will be England,” the 49-year-old told CNN.

“When? I don’t know, I don’t have an idea. I’m so happy in this moment to be manager of the best club in the world.”


There is a certain amount of pressure growing on Jose Mourinho, which may seem ridiculous given that the former Chelsea boss guided Real Madrid to a La Liga title last term.

Reports of a falling out with Sergio Ramos and a very average start to the current campaign has left some wondering just how much longer the Portuguese ‘Special One’ will remain in Spain.

This is umpteenth time the Bernabeu boss has stated his wish to return to England and whilst he may be talking about some unspecified point in the future perhaps the chance of a move to the Premier League will be brought forward if Real Madrid fail to retain their title this term.
