Speaking alongside his fellow Belgium international teammate Romelu Lukaku - who also confessed he would like to play under Mourinho again, despite being sold by the revered Portuguese coach in 2014 - Benteke was asked which manager he hopes to work with before hanging up his boots.
As well as Mourinho, the 24-year-old also revealed his dream of playing under the current Bayern Munich head coach Pep Guardiola.

Benteke may have been a poor signing for Liverpool
Liverpool only secured Benteke’s services in the summer, for £32.5 million from Aston Villa, but there have been signs that the powerful Belgian may struggle at Anfield.
Benteke is a player who relies on crosses into the box, but Rodgers’ teams don’t play that way.
The former Villa star has scored two goals in his first six appearances for the Reds, but is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury.
He may struggle to get back into the starting line-up when he returns, though, with Daniel Sturridge and Danny ings currently working well together upfront.
Benteke would probably have been a better fit for Chelsea, who were reportedly keen on the striker, than Liverpool.
Perhaps the striker’s wish will come true, potentially as early as next season?
