Mourinho: I don't like Serie A

2010-03-31 10:38

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.

    Jose Mourinho is a legend man. This guy is just about arrogant enough to take over from The Gaffer at United when he steps down. Cracks me up no end too.... Doesn't speak to the press for 6 weeks then says "they don't like me" and "I don't like Italian football"...... Classic oh special one Classic!!!. Lmfao!!!

    I believe that Liverpool will be recruiting a new manager next season. Here's your chance to manage a BIG club again.

    @YNWA buddy he's a winner and clearly wants to WIN tropgies and play in the Champions League thus.......... Europa League would not suffice for Mourinho. Also you guys don't have the mopney to buy Rafa out of his contract either so just forget it............. It's kinda sad though cos it would be great to see Liverpool atleast challenge United while we march on and take sole leadership on the titles front ( in terms of leagues)

    Mourinho might have a Big Mouth but he is not stupid! Imagine him coaching Liverfool...he should rather coach Hull City, they will need a permanent coach soon! Also Hull is BIGGER than Liverfool! Let's see all the FOOL supporters bring out the history book on this comment!

    Like @seeps has pointed out Liverfool have no money to buy out Rafa's contract and Arsenal will hang on to Wenger , Chelsea is out of the question due to past history there ,so that leaves United . Is Fergie ready to step down ? THE SPECIAL ONE has made no secret of his desire to coach United and Fergie is an admirer of his ...let's watch this space shall we ?

    I thought everyone already new that The Special One is taking over at Old Trafford once Fergie goes.
