Mou: I Will Come Back To England

Jose Mourinho has reiterated his love of English football, increasing the likelihood that he will be managing a Premier League team next season.

The bookies have already started making odds on The Special One’s potential return to Chelsea, who are still on the lookout for a long-term successor to Roberto Di Matteo.

Mourinho was the manager who initially propelled the Blues to glory under Roman Abramovich, before falling out with the Russian billionaire.

But the two have subsequently kissed and made up, and while Roman is known to prefer the idea of hiring Pep Guardiola, if the former Barca boss opts for another option, there could be a Stamford Bridge return for Mourinho.

The Portuguese tactician appears to be in the home stretch of his stay at Real Madrid.

The Spanish champions have all but surrendered their grip on La Liga title already, and it is not too far-fetched to imagine Mourinho exiting the Bernabeu if Los Blancos get eliminated from the Uefa Champions League at any stage before the final later this year.

And should that be the case, a host of English teams may well fancy their chances of luring The Special One back to blighty, considering his self-professed love of England’s “passion for football.”

 "My memories from English football could not be better. It was my first experience outside of Portugal – I was still a very young coach when I left Portugal to go to England. But there couldn't be a better place to go. In England you feel the real passion for the game. You also don't feel what we feel in almost every other country which is the passion for clubs. In England, it's not just about passion for clubs, it's mainly about passion for football – and you feel it,” Mourinho gushed in a video message, recorded to celebrate the English FA’s 150 year anniversary.

"So, my memories are great. I loved it from the first to the last day. I don't regret my last day because after that I was lucky enough to enjoy Italy and to have and enjoy some success there and also in Spain, so I don't regret the day I left. But I know that one day I will come back because English football means a lot to myself … Of course, it's impossible, but 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."
