Mourinho will not walk away from Chelsea….

Jose Mourinho and Roman Abramovich

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says he would not choose to leave the Premier League champions but is prepared to manage another English club. Mourinho, 52, began his second spell in charge at Stamford Bridge in 2013. His first stint, from 2004-2007, ended after his relationship with owner Roman Abramovich became strained. “I see myself coaching another club, yes, but I love Chelsea and I am in Mr Abramovich’s hands and until then I am here,” Mourinho told Football Focus. “The day Mr Abramovich thinks I am not good enough for Chelsea, I want to work, and if possible in England too.” In September 2007, the former Porto boss left English football after Chelsea suffered an indifferent start to the season. He went on to manage Italian side Inter Milan where he won the league, cup and Champions League treble, before joining Real Madrid, capturing the La Liga title and domestic cup in his three-year spell in the Spanish capital. After returning to Chelsea, the Portuguese boss – who has been named manager of the season – led the club to their fourth Premier League title this season – a third under him – as well as winning the League Cup. “Until Mr Abramovich says, I don’t see myself going,” added Mourinho. “Any club comes to me now and offers me a fantastic project, offers me twice my wages in the contract at Chelsea, no chance.” He also told Football Focus that periods of “clear domination” enjoyed by Manchester United and his previous Chelsea side are no longer possible.
