Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho insists he will only leave his current club if he is sacked, though the Portuguese manager has not ruled out the possibility of one day managing an English Premier League rival club.
Despite being adamant he is fully committed to the Blues, the Special One will not dismiss his chances of ever managing another Premier League giant.
“If it had to be, yes,” Mourinho replied when asked if he would ever manage another English club.
“My priority will always be Chelsea and I never think about the interest of others. But I know football and know I won’t be here five, eight, ten years if I don’t manage to win. Of course not.”
“That’s not my essence as a coach, because I don’t like to live in those comfort zones. It doesn’t fit my personality.”
“I will only leave when they want me to leave. There’s no other country, club or investment that motivates me. I will only leave when Mr Abramovich calls me to tell me it’s over.”
“Only on that day will I look for other solutions. But to answer the question, I will say that when I have to think about the matter, then we’ll see.”
