Jose Mourinho is realizing he's come to the wrong place.

Real Madrid are doing incredibly well under Mourinho's tutelage, but despite that, the club still finds itself four points behind Barcelona for the Liga title.

And doesn't help that Jose continues to find himself fighting with the club's hierarchy when it comes to signing another center-forward.

Mourinho made his luck in Barcelona, the club with which he launched his managerial status under fiery Englishman Sir Bobby Robson. But let's not get too far into that.

Jose Mourinho refused to acknowledge that he would stay on at the club after this season, fueling speculation that he might return to England, possibly with England, Manchester United or Manchester City.
