Mourinho: I don't like Serie A
London - Jose Mourinho sparked speculation about his future on Tuesday on the eve of his side Inter Milan's Champions League quarter-final clash with CSKA Moscow by declaring he was unhappy with Italian football.
The charismatic but unpredictable Portuguese coach, who previously managed English Premiership giants Chelsea and guided Porto to the 2004 Champions League trophy, told Sky Sports that he did not like Italian football.
"It is a simple situation, I am very happy" said the 47-year-old, who is in his second season with Inter.
"I am happy at Inter, but unhappy with Italian football.
"I always speak with my heart, but if I spoke with my heart now about Serie A I would be suspended."
Mourinho, who has not enamoured himself with the Italian football authorities earning himself four touchline bans, made it clear why he was unhappy.
"Because I do not like it (Italian football) and because they don't like me."
Mourinho - who earlier on Tuesday had 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.
