Stamford Bridge boss is going nowhere.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has admitted that he would consider a managerial future away from Stamford Bridge but would never quit the club according to Goal.com.
The Portuguese manager returned to the west London club in the summer of 2013 and had a solid, if unspectacular, first campaign but has seen his side ‘kick on’ this term and sit top of the Premier League after an impressive start to the season.
When asked if he’d ever manage another English club Mourinho replied;
“If it had to be, yes,”
“My priority will always be Chelsea and I never think about the interest of others. But I know football and know I won’t be here five, eight, ten years if I don’t manage to win. Of course not.
“That’s not my essence as a coach, because I don’t like to live in those comfort zones. It doesn’t fit my personality.
“I will only leave when they want me to leave. There’s no other country, club or investment that motivates me. I will only leave when Mr Abramovich calls me to tell me it’s over.
“Only on that day will I look for other solutions. But to answer the question, I will say that when I have to think about the matter, then we’ll see.”
News of Mourinho’s commitment to the cause will please the Blues faithful as Chelsea prepare for their Champions League encounter away at Sporting Lisbon on Tuesday night.
