Mourinho confirms return to English Premier League after Real Madrid stint

Madrid, Oct 2: Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that the Premier League would be his next destination after his stint with the Spanish champions, but the Portuguese failed to reveal the exact timing of his England comeback.

“I just say openly, that for many reasons, after Real Madrid, Spain, Inter, Italy, Chelsea, England, Porto, Portugal, that after this project, the next step will be England for many reasons, but when, I don’t know,” Sports24 quoted Mourinho, as saying.

Mourinho, who managed Chelsea for three years, remained tight-lipped about which club he might be tempted to join, but speculation suggests that he is favourite to succeed Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.

“I call him the boss because he’s the boss of the coaches and I hope that when I go back to English football he still manages Manchester United,” Mourinho said of Ferguson.

“I don’t think about that, especially as I have a four-year contract with Real, I sign it and when I sign it, I sign it because I wanted to be in Real Madrid at this period of my career and I don’t think in another club,” he added. (ANI)
