									Real Madrid's Jose Mourinho - I will return
to manage in England
         Jose Mourinho says he will return to English football when his reign as Real Madrid
manager ends, but the Portuguese insists he is happy at the Bernabeu. While the ex-Chelsea boss
is contracted to Real until 2016, he feels his next job will be back in the Premier League. "I just
say openly that, for many reasons, after this the next step will be England," the 49-year-old told
CNN. Mourinho joined Real from Inter Milan in 2010 having guided the Italian club to their
third European Cup triumph. His side missed out on the Spanish league title to Barcelona in his
first season but got the better of them a year later. That meant Mourinho could add the La Liga
crown to the two apiece he won with Inter (2008-10), Chelsea (2004-06) and Porto (2002-04).

        He has been mentioned as a potential successor to Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester
United, but Mourinho says he would rather the Scot still be in charge at Old Trafford when he
returns to Britain. "The perfect scenario is when I go there he is still coach," said Mourinho.
"Because football will lose a lot when he stops. "For me, he is the boss. I call him the boss
because he is the boss of the coaches and I hope when I go back to English football he is still
manager of Manchester United."

        Mourinho led Porto to Champions League glory before taking over at Chelsea, winning
two league titles, an FA Cup and two League Cups. He made a shock exit from Stamford Bridge
in 2007 after his relationship with Blues owner Roman Abramovich grew troubled. But when
asked if he would consider working under the Russian at Chelsea again, Mourinho replied: "Of
course, of course. "It was a perfect example of a fantastic divorce. We are a lot in touch. We
have a great relationship."
