Jose Mourinho is eying up a return to England, after insisting he wants to return to the Premier League when he leaves Real Madrid. Mourinho, who has three years left on his current contract, was speaking ahead of the crunch European tie against Manchester United tonight. And when asked as to when he wants to return to the Premier League, the Portuguese manager said: “After Real. I love everything about the Premier League.” The 50-year-old manager has been linked with Chelsea, Manchester City and United, and when asked about the possibility of replacing Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford he said: “I don’t think so.” He added: “I think we have to end our career at the same time. [Ferguson] at 90 and me at 70.” Mourinho was in charge of Chelsea between 2004 and 2007. During that time, he famously called himself “The Special One” as he went on to win the Premier League twice in a row. He also led Chelsea to two League Cup victories as well as the FA Cup. After Chelsea, Mourinho successfully led Inter Milan to two Seria A titles, as well as a Champions League medal, his second after his 2004 victory with Porto. Mourinho has been manager of Real Madrid since 2010 where he won the title last season to end Barcelona’s title dominance. However, his future at the Bearnabeu is under threat after a disastrous start to the season. His side are currently 16 points behind Barcelona, amid rumours that he is also losing the support of his players. Last month Mourinho said that his love for the English game hadn’t disappeared despite his sacking from Chelsea. He told FourFourTwo magazine: “I feel everybody involved in the game should experience English football because it’s a special feeling. You really enjoy being a football professional there.” He added: “In England you feel the real passion for the game. I know that one day I will come back because English football means a lot to myself.”   Written by Craig Lishman Follow Craig on Twitter @CraigLishman Please like O-Posts on Facebook You can follow O-Posts on Twitter @OPosts
