Manchester United target Jose Mourinho open to Inter Milan return in future
Mourinho helped Inter become the first Italian club to complete the prestigious treble of winning the league, domestic cup and UEFA Champions League in 2010.
New Delhi: Portuguese football manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly admitted that he could return to Italian club Inter Milan in future.
The out of work manager attended his former club's Serie A match against Sampdoria on Saturday, and a report in Goal.com on Sunday said that the 53-year-old is open to such a move in future.
Inter won the match 3-1 thanks to goals from Danilo D'Ambrosio, Miranda and Mauro Icardi; and are now in the fourth position in league standing with 48 points from 26 matches.
"This is like coming back home to a family. It feels like it's been six days more than six years since I've been away. The greatest thing about football, more important than results or victories, is the human rapport and friendship that remains," Mourinho was quoted as saying in the report.
Yesterday, Inter Milan director Bedy Moratti was widely reported as saying Mourinho is sure to replace Louis van Gaal as the manager at Manchester United.
"Could I return to Inter one day? Why not. I returned to Chelsea, so why not back to Inter too? I just want everything to go well for the current president and Roberto Mancini at Inter," the former Chelsea manager added.
The Portuguese helped Inter become the first Italian club to complete the prestigious treble of winning the league, domestic cup and UEFA Champions League in 2010. But, despite the unrivaled success, he left San Siro to join Real Madrid.
In between, United suffered yet another humiliating defeat at the hands of relatively unknown Midtjylland on Thursday, losing their UEFA Europa League Round of 32 first leg game 1-2.
