Mourinho Odds-On For City Job?
Jose Mourinho has confirmed he expects to return to England when he leaves Real Madrid - but not to join Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho: "A return to England is on the agenda.
"Are you worried with my crisis? I am not.
"But I will go back to England after Real Madrid. We will see (when that is).
"I love everything (about England). England will be my next step.
"It will not be at Old Trafford. No, I will not replace Ferguson.
"I don't believe so.
"I think we have to end our career at the same time. Him at 90 and me at 70.
"It is easy to play against big opponents and big teams.
"We are finding it harder to play against smaller opponents, against whom we have lost so many points.
"We were in a very difficult Champions League group, with Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund, and we knew from day one we could be out. We had to play at top level to finish first or second.
"This is the history of our team and tomorrow is the biggest opponent."
He was asked to comment on the Spanish newspaper depiction of Wayne Rooney as a "hooligan".
"I didn't read it," said Mourinho.
"I don't know if it was written in that context, calling him a hooligan, or completely different.
"But if I can say one thing on behalf of Rooney, I was called worse than that, week by week."
