Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho, facing speculation he may move on in the summer after three years at the Bernabeu, said Wednesday he does not expect to join the Qatari-financed revolution at Paris Saint Germain.
Asked if he might be in the frame were PSG to come calling Mourinho told Radio Monte Carlo "I'm not hoping to," not least because he wants the table-topping Parisians to keep faith with Carlo Ancelotti.
"I hope they have success with Carlo and (sporting director) Leonardo and don't need another coach. I am happy Paris has this project (with Ancelotti). It is fantastic," said Mourinho.
But asked if one day he might be tempted to coach in France, the former Porto, Chelsea and Inter Milan handler responded: "Why not?"
Mourinho indicated he understands the speculation on his future plans.
"Many people are talking about me in Paris, that's true. You have to say I know (PSG chairman Nasser) Al-Khelaifi. But I have only spoken to him once and that was before he bought the club," the Portuguese stated.
Mourinho is widely expected, should he leave Real, to target a return to England.
"England is my first love. My wife is my first love but England is when it comes to football," he said.
