Mourinho considering future

Jose Mourinho will make a decision on his Real Madrid future at the end of the season, with a return to the Premier League firmly on the cards.

Last Updated: 01/05/13 at 07:46 Post Comment

The former Chelsea manager has been strongly linked with a return to Stamford Bridge, with interim manager Rafa Benitez set to depart when his short-term contract expires in the summer.

Mourinho was speaking after Real's UEFA Champions League semi-final elimination at the hands of Borussia Dortmund, where a 2-0 second leg success was not enough to prevent a 4-3 aggregate defeat.

The Portuguese coach said: "I know in England I am loved. I am loved by the fans, I am loved by the media, they treat me in a fair way, criticising me and giving me credit when I deserve it.

"I know I am loved by some clubs, especially one.

"In Spain the situation is a bit different because some people hate me.

"I didn't make a decision because I have a contract, but more than the contract, the respect I have for the club and the president.

"I want to finish the season, I want to try to win the (Copa del Rey) final, I want to try to finish second (in La Liga) and at the end of the season I will sit with Florentino Perez, my president, my friend, and decide the best for me.

"It is difficult to make a decision because I like the club, I like the president, we made a fantastic team that is ready to make big things, so it is hard.

"I need to be honest and fair. At the end of the season I will speak."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
