Mourinho keen to return

22 September 2007 08:30
Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho insists his next job will not be in England or Portugal, although he has not ruled out the prospect of returning to the Premier League later in his career. Mourinho, who sensationally left Stamford Bridge by mutual consent on Wednesday night, is keen to return to football management as soon as possible though. "I will come back and manage here, but I don't want it as my next step - it must be another country, another experience, another football," he said. "I'm 44 and I hope I will have many years in English football. I love English football. "I don't want the Portuguese national team. I want to make that very, very clear. I want Portugal to succeed, I want them to work calmly and I don't want Scolari to have to look behind him thinking I'm waiting. "Not just the Portuguese national team, I don't want to work in Portuguese football. I just hope I'm surrounded by love so I can express my personality. "I think sometime I will return to coach in England. "But I don't want players to threaten to leave (Chelsea) because I have. I don't want the fans to chant my name. I don't want demonstrations of any sort. "I'm happy to have left and I'm happy with what I achieved at Chelsea not only with the results but with the mark I made."
