Mourinho hopes next job with be back in England

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho hopes his next job will be back

in the English Premier League ”in a couple of years.”

The Portuguese left Chelsea in 2007 after winning two league

titles and was hired by Madrid in 2010 after a trophy-laden two

seasons at Inter Milan.

But success in Madrid has been limited to one Copa del Rey title

while Barcelona, a side considered the best ever, has dominated

Spanish and European football.

”I am very, very happy to be in Real Madrid, it is a great

experience for me. I believe it is probably the biggest club in the

history of football,” the 48-year-old Mourinho told BBC radio in

an interview aired Monday.

”But my passion is England and my next step will be to go back

and if possible, go and stay for a long time,” said Mourinho,

whose Madrid contract expires in 2014.

Madrid currently has a three-point lead over Barcelona.

Mourinho was interviewed by Sebastian Coe, the double Olympic

middle-distance champion who heads the 2012 London Olympics

organizing committee and who was guest editing Radio Four’s Today

program on Monday.

”Get me a club in a couple of years,” Mourinho asked Coe, who

is a Chelsea fan. ”Get me a good club.”
