José Mourinho has once again voiced his desire to move back to the Premier League after his spell in charge of Real Madrid is over.

The former Chelsea boss has been relentlessly linked with a return to English football after leaving Stamford Bridge in 2007.

Since leaving west London, Mourinho guided Internazionale to an historic treble in 2010 before taking the reigns at Real Madrid and leading the Spanish giants to Copa del Rey glory last term.

And the 48-year-old Mourinho, whose contract at Madrid expires in the summer of 2014, is confident his next managerial job will be in the Premier League.

“I am very, very happy to be in Real Madrid. It is a great experience for me,” he told BBC Radio Four’s Today programme.

“I believe it is probably the biggest club in the history of football, I didn’t want to miss the chance to work here but my passion is England and my next step will be to go back, if possible go and stay for a long time.”

He added: “Get me a club in a couple of years, get me a good club.”
