Controversial Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino believes that if Jose Mourinho wanted a real challenge, he would manage the Yorkshire club instead of Manchester United next season.
Cellino, who has employed seven different coaches since taking over the Elland Road club in 2014, has claimed that he challenged the Portuguese manager to help him return the Championship outfit to England's top flight.
"I told him, 'If you had the balls, you should come and manage Leeds. Bring Leeds into the Premier League and then the Champions League. That's balls," Cellino told The Telegraph.
"You want to play football – come with me to Leeds. Mourinho, like others, has to ask himself if he is still a coach. How do you find out? By going to Manchester United?
"Ancelotti called me: 'Massimo, bring the club into the Premier League and I come to you because the only place I miss and want to go back to is England.'
"For me, a good coach still has to show he's a good coach. Come here and show me."
