Mourinho: My Future Coaching Job Will Not Be In Italy

Austin Papi

Former Manchester United gaffer, Jose Mourinho, has indicated that he does not expect his next coaching position to be in Italy, though he had a phenomenal success with Inter Milan in 2008.

He won the Italian Serie A in his first season, and the following season, he guided Inter Milan to a treble win, UEFA Champions League, Serie A and Copa Italia, making Inter Milan the first Italian team to win a treble in 2009-2010 season.

The 56-year-old tactician, who loves to be referred to as the "Special One", claimed a total of five major honours during his two seasons at San Siro. He crowned his historic treble winning season in 2010 with a 2-0 win against Bayern Munich in the Champions League final.

Mourinho hinted after that victory at the Santiago Bernabeu that it would be his last match in charge of Inter Milan and he officially departed the San Siro outfit a week later to take over at Real Madrid.

Although the controversial Portugese manager has happy memories of his time in Italy, he does not see a need to return to the game there even after saying it was hard to leave Italy.

During an interview with Italian TV show, 'Tiki Taka', Mourinho said: "My future? I don't think it will be in Italy.

"Inter is my home, my family. Massimo Moratti is a friend, my president. The story of the treble was fantastic.

"After [the final in] Madrid, if I returned to San Siro to celebrate, I would never leave Inter. When you say goodbye to a family it's a hard thing to deal with.

"That night I already knew I was leaving, I couldn't say no to Real Madrid for the third time."
