Jose Mourinho has put English football's big-spending clubs on alert after admitting he still wants to manage in the Barclays Premier League.

The self-proclaimed 'Special One' won every domestic honour during his time as manager of the Blues including back-to-back Premier League titles. But he was sacked in September 2007 after his relationship with the club's billionaire owner Roman Abramovich suffered an irreparable breakdown.

"I have, as I said before, three things to do in my career - one is to come back to English football, another thing is to win the Spanish championship, because no one has won Italian, English and Spanish titles.

"Another one, when I'm old, is to coach my national team. But, for now, I would like to keep winning with Inter."

Mourinho insists there will be no sensational celebrations if his Inter side end Chelsea's Champions League dream for another season.

Inter lead 2-1 from the first leg of the last-16 tie in the San Siro and while Mourinho insists that he will love everyone at Chelsea before and after the game, for 90 minutes he will be alone.

"My celebrations will be restrained if we win out of respect. Because it's Chelsea. Because it's the team where I worked for three and a half years, the same people, the same players, the same supporters who made me feel incredible every time we played in this stadium.

"During the 90 minutes, I will give everything to try and help my team win. Players win matches on the pitch. Coaches just try and give a bit of help.

"For 90 minutes I will know nobody. Before the game I know everybody and I love them, and after the game I know everybody and I love them. But for 90 minutes I know nobody."

Mourinho seeemed to imply concerns with German referee Wolfgang Stark - an official with history where Inter are concerned.

"We were talking about the referee, but we know that Inter lost against Arsenal, Valencia and Manchester United with this referee," he said. "But I don't believe in bad luck. What's more important is to have a good performance."
