Chelsea’s maverick manager Jose Mourinho has claimed he wants to manage the Blues for the next 12 years, before then potentially managing Portugal or England, reports the Mirror.
Mourinho rejoined the Stamford Bridge outfit this summer, following successful spells at both Inter Milan and Real Madrid after he first left the West London club in 2007.
His first spell lasted for three years, but the Portuguese boss wants to quadruple that stay this time, before leaving his post to manage internationally.
“How long can I stay? I have four years contract remaining. Realistically, I hope at the end of those four years we sit, analyse the situation and that will be the point where we are both – club and me – happy to carry on or happy to separate. Realistically, my desire and my feeling is to work these four years and, after that, analyse the situation,” Mourinho said.
When pushed on exactly how long he wanted to stay as Chelsea boss, Mourinho was more definitive.
“I would say 12 years,” he added.
“I’m 51 next month. I’d say 12 years, and to go to a World Cup with a national team. I would prefer the Portuguese national team. England second, yes.”
Since buying the club in 2003, Roman Abramovich has seen ten managers pass through the doors, so the chances of him now giving a Chelsea boss over ten years at the helm seem pretty slim.
