JOSE Mourinho sparked speculation about his future this week, on the eve of his side Inter Milan’s Champions League quarterfinal clash with CSKA Moscow, by declaring he was unhappy with Italian football.
The charismatic but unpredictable Portuguese coach, who previously managed English Premier League giants Chelsea and guided Porto to the 2004 Champions League trophy, told Sky Sports that he does not like Italian football. “It is a simple situation,” said the 47-year-old, who is in his second season with Inter.
“I am happy at Inter, but unhappy with Italian football.” Mourinho, who has not enamoured himself with the Italian football authorities, earning himself four touchline bans, made it clear why he was unhappy.
“I do not like it (Italian football) and it doesn’t like me.”
Mourinho — who earlier on Tuesday held his first press conference with the Italian media for six weeks — has made it no secret he would love a return to English football, which he left when sacked by Chelsea in 2007 after a successful three-year spell there. –– AFP.
