MADRID (AP)

Jose Mourinho says he would like to see former Spain coach Luis Aragones replace the fired Carlos Queiroz at the helm of Portugal's national team, although a native coach is probably the team's best bet.

Despite backing Aragones for his character, Mourinho says he prefers national teams led by native coaches, although victories are still the most important result.

Mourinho says "I want Portugal to win be it Queiroz, Luis or a Japanese coach."

Mourinho says Portugal has enough talent to qualify for the 2012 European Championship in Poland and Ukraine.
