Jose Mourinho has fuelled speculation that he is set to return to England by announcing he is unhappy with Italian football and he misses English football.
The Portuguese manager led Chelsea to two consecutive league titles and has been continually linked with a return to England, possibly replacing Roberto Mancini at Eastlands. And his recent comments will only add fuel to the fire that has been growing since last summer.
“I’m not happy in Italian football, because I don’t like it and they don’t like me,” said Mourinho before adding “I miss English football and English football misses me, there’s no doubt about that. But right now I’m thinking only about Inter.”
Mourinho has been constantly touted as returning to England, with Manchester on the list of possible destinations but whether it will Eastlands or Old Trafford remains to be seen. Mancini took over the reigns from Mark Hughes on a temporary basis and it has been suggested that Mourinho could replace him in the summer, but the Portuguese may want to hold out for the Old Trafford hot seat once Sir Alex Ferguson vacates it.
Meanwhile a recent poll conducted by Over The Blue Moon revealed that fans are narrowly split over Mancini. 44% of voters feel Mancini should be judged at the end of the season while 43% feel he has already done enough to take the job permanently.
What do you think? Should we stick with Mancini or go for Mourinho?
