It’s been a rough season for Chelsea and Jose Mourinho may be getting ready for a move sooner than later.
Amidst fan outrage and Chelsea’s 4/15 point start to the season, Jose Mourinho said that when the time comes for him to leave the club, he could possibly join Arsenal.
In an interview with English loudmouth Piers Morgan at the GQ Awards, the Metro reported that Mourinho said that while he knows he’ll leave Stamford Bridge someday, he plans to continue living in London and could continue his managerial career with another London outfit – and included Arsenal on the list.
“Well let me put it like this: one day I will leave Chelsea, and when I do I will continue living in London,” Mourinho said. “There are a number of other opportunities for a manager in London – Fulham, QPR, West Ham, Spurs, the England national team… and Arsenal.”
But Mourinho quickly ruled out several of the clubs on the list, leaving on the Three Lions and the Gunners on his short-list.
“So, Piers, we are left with two options, yes? Arsenal and the national team,” Mourinho added. “For now I have given you what you wanted – a glimmer of hope.”
Morgan, an outspoken Arsenal fan with a small minority stake in the club, has previously tried recruiting the likes of John Terry to Emirates Stadium.
