Jose Mourinho has once again reiterated his desire to return to Premier League management once his stint at Real Madrid is over.

The Portuguese coach spent three seasons at Stamford Bridge as he guided the Blues to two league titles and an FA Cup, as well as two league cup triumphs.

Mourinho, 49, left west London in 2007 and subsequently took the reins at Internazionale and led the Serie A giants to an historic treble in 2010.

And the Real Madrid boss, whose side won the La Liga title last season and the Copa del Rey the year before, has his sights set on a return to top-flight management.

“When I speak about it in Spain, they turn my words immediately. But I cannot deny what is clear in my mind – after Real Madrid, England. That’s for sure,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.

“But I keep saying the same – I know clearly that it’s where I want to be.

“In England [I could manage] everyone. I am blue, but I am London blue. I am a professional.”
