Former Man United icon open to working under current Chelsea manager

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed that he will have no problems working under Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho in the future, according to reports from the London Evening Standard.

Mourinho has recently been under intense pressure due to the Blues’ terrible Premier League campaign, but despite this, Ronaldo believes that the Portuguese is the best manager he has ever had the opportunity to play for.

“I would put him at the top, I always say that,” Ronaldo told BT Sport.

The English champions have been linked with a move for Ronaldo in the past, and the ex-Manchester United icon has not turned down the possibility of leaving Real when his contract terminates in two years’ time.

“Work with Mourinho again? Why not?” Ronaldo told Spanish publication Marca.

“I’ve got two more years on my contract with Real Madrid, but no-one knows what the future holds.”

However, his agent Jorge Mendes has a very different opinion on his client, who he believes will play at the Santiago Bernabeu into his 40s.

“We must wait maybe 10 years because I said many times and I think he will finish his career about 40 or 41 years old,” Mendes told Standard Sport.

“I’m sure that he will finish his career at Real Madrid and after that we will see, it’s too soon.”

Ronaldo was the main man on Monday night during the premiere of his documentary in London, with a host of stars such as Mourinho and another former manager in Sir Alex Ferguson attending the event.
