PLAYERS: Jose Mourinho
Jose Mourinho says he will likely remain coach of Real Madrid beyond this season with the Spanish leader playing for a spot in the Champions League final. Mourinho is under contract until 2014 and has repeatedly refused to confirm whether he will see out the full four years of his deal. He is reportedly linked to a return to Chelsea or another English club, Manchester City. Speaking before Wednesday's semifinal against Bayern Munich, the Portuguese coach said: ''I think I will continue. There's no reason for me to leave.'' Mourinho says he will speak with his players and club officials at the end of the season to determine whether it's in everyone's interests for him to stay. Madrid trails Bayern 2-1 going into the return leg.
