Jose Mourinho open to Italy return after Chelsea

Published Add your comment

Jose Mourinho has revealed that he is open to returning to Italy after his time at Chelsea is up.

The Special One only took over at Stamford Bridge in the summer, looking to replicate the glory he experienced during his first spell at Stamford Bridge.

So far he is doing rather well. Chelsea are top of the Premier League and are also favourites to advance into the quarter-finals of the Champions League against Galatasaray.

But Mourinho knows all too well how quickly things can go wrong under Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, who in the past has shown no qualms with getting rid of managers quickly.

It is that trigger happy action that has probably forced Mourinho to consider life after his second spell in charge of the Blues, and it seems he already has a plan for such an eventuality.

Speaking to Italian television station Mediaset, Mourinho said: "I want to stay in the Premier League for many years, but there may come a time when Roman Abramovich decides my time is over and then I can think about returning to Italy.

"A return to Italy would mean only Inter for me."

Mourinho is arguably a bigger cult figure in Milan than he is in west London after guiding Inter to a historic treble including a famous Champions League win against Barcelona.

He left that very same season for Real Madrid where he failed to replicate such incredible success in three season in charge.
