Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has announced that his next job will be in England, and he is hoping to form a dynasty at whichever club he takes over, rather than the shorter stints he has been known for throughout his career. Mourinho also went on to say that Real Madrid is the “most difficult club in the world.” Whether Mourinho will negotiate an early exit from Madrid is unknown as yet.

The Special One spoke in length about a possible return to the Premier League stating, “I miss England and my next job will be in England. There is unfinished business. And I think England wants me back, no? It was the most enjoyable time of my career. My Chelsea time was amazing as a football manager and family man. My family and I enjoyed it so much. We made so many friends here. We still keep in touch, we still come back. In football there are a few victories here I would like to repeat. I will talk to my agent and get a project for my career.

“I still have three years at Real Madrid. It is the biggest club in the world but it is also the most difficult club in the world. They came to me for the third time, and I could not say no to them for the third time—I had to go. And I had to go to Italy, that was important for me because I wanted to try there. Everyone said it was the home of tactics so I said let me try there.

“But it is not England, England is special. People in Italy, Spain and Portugal ask me why I love England so much and I can’t explain—I just do. I want to be happy in my work. I want to be happy with my football.”

Where Jose will go and when he will return is not known right now, but I for one cannot wait to see where he ends up.
