Mourinho will return to English football

Jose Mourinho is planning a return to English football when he moves on from his current position with Spanish giants Real Madrid.

The former Chelsea manager is visiting London this week to support a music charity event and has told the media that he wants to return to work in England when he takes up his next job. Mourinho left to work in Italy in 2007 after falling out with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and there he delivered a domestic double and Champions league trophy to his masters at Inter Milan before being drawn to Spain by persistent pleas from Real Madrid.

Despite his success in Italy and Spain, Mourinho has made no secret of his love for England and its football and will make plans with his agent to find a Premier League club when he finally parts company with Real Madrid.

"I miss England and my next job will be in England," he told reporters, “there is unfinished business. And, I think England wants me back, no? It was the most enjoyable time of my career. 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.”

Mourinho joined Real Madrid in this pre-season and has three years remaining on his contract but life has not gone smoothly at the Bernabeu as he comes to terms with the political conflict at the club.

“It (Real Madrid) is the biggest club in the world but it is also the most difficult club in the world,” he said. “They came to me for the third time and I could not say no to them for the third time - I had to go.”

A regular visitor to England with his family, neither Mourinho nor his friends can fully comprehend his fascination with the country where he spent just three years of his 30-year career in football.

“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."
