Jose Mourinho has insisted he shall return to the Premier League in the future as he claimed he is still close friends with the Chelsea staff. The current Real Madrid manager was in charge of Chelsea from 2004-07, taking them to their first and second Premier League title and also won the FA and League cups respectively.
When questioned if he would return to Stamford Bridge, Jose said “I want to be back in English football one day yes and I’ve always thought that. I’ll go where people really want me and when that moment arrives, they’ll show me they really want me. That is important for me, but I repeat, I am with Real Madrid, where I very much want to be” almost instantly halting any rumours from spreading too quickly.
Mourinho’s dismissal from Chelsea came five years ago as Roman Abramovich claimed “He was too friendly with the board”. The Portugese manager revealed “I had to go because I was too friendly with them- the managers. I didn’t want to stay and let things go into a direction where we felt wasn’t the best one, so we felt that was the best decision, because we are friends. We will be friends forever me and Abramovic”.
Perhaps the friendship can find some time to re-kindle but first you’ll have to fight Roberto Di Matteo for the place as he has already achieved one championship that the Portugese mastro could never achieve. Roberto won the Champions League.
