Mourinho guarded on Chelsea talk

José Mourinho Jose Mourinho refused to discuss rumours he is set to rejoin Chelsea following Real Madrid’s Copa del Rey final defeat.

Real were beaten 2-1 after extra time in the Copa del Rey final by city rivals Atletico Madrid and Mourinho has since conceded that the current campaign has been the worst of his managerial career.

The Portuguese coach is widely expected to head to former club Chelsea in the summer, while Paris Saint-Germain boss Carlo Ancelotti has been tipped to move to the Bernabeu.

Mourinho, however, insists no decision on his future has been made yet and is keen to concentrate on Real’s remaining fixtures, rather than speculation he is set to return to Stamford Bridge.

“I have three more years on my contract with Real Madrid,” Mourinho said after Friday’s game. “I still haven’t sat down with the president to talk about my future.

“I think it’s normal that people talk about Ancelotti or any other.

“People are also saying that I’m going to Chelsea, or here or there. We will make it official when me and the president sit down and decide what to do.

“That’s the way it should be. There are still two games in the league to play. We have to play the league and respect the other teams we are playing – Real Sociedad and Osasuna – who still have objectives, like qualifying for the Champions League and avoiding relegation.”
