Mourinho: I have not decided to leave


Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has said he has not decided to leave the Spanish giants at the end of the season, despite continued reports he is set to return to his former club Chelsea in the summer.

Speaking in the press conference ahead of his side’s match with Valladolid in La Liga, Mourinho said he will make a decision on his future at the end of the campaign.

He stated: “When I decide on my future, my wife and kids will be the first to know, then the president and general director.”

The 50-year-old seemed to suggest last week that he was set for a return to Stamford Bridge following Madrid’s exit from the Champions League.

After the match, the Portuguese, who was in charge of the Blues between 2004 and 2007, said his next job would be “where people love me”.

He added that he knew he was “loved be some clubs, especially one”.

Meanwhile, other Premier League managers have been speaking about Mourinho’s potential return.

Manchester United boss, Sir Alex Ferguson, said: “He said he is loved by one English team and going back is a big attraction for him, if his time at Madrid is finished of course. But I have no knowledge of that.

And QPR manage Harry Redknapp claimed Mourinho’s return would “brighten up” the Premier League.
