Mourinho ‘offered new Chelsea deal’

first_img Since his return after a six-and-a-half-year absence, Mourinho has often spoken of his desire to stay as long as owner Roman Abramovich wishes to keep him. The Blues boss repeated that after Sunday’s 1-0 defeat of Crystal Palace, which secured Chelsea’s first title since 2009-10 and the eighth of his prolific career. “As I was saying since the beginning of the season, I stay here until Mr Abramovich wants me to stay. The day he tells me to go, I go,” said Mourinho, who has led something of a nomadic existence since leaving Porto for London in June 2004. Mourinho left Chelsea in September 2007 and spent two seasons as Inter Milan boss, before in 2010 moving to Real Madrid for three seasons and then rejoining the Blues. Prior to the Capital One Cup final victory over Tottenham on March 1, Mourinho revealed he would consider moving to another English club if he left Chelsea, where he wishes to stay for the remainder of his career. “I don’t want to go away. I will stay here in this chair until Mr Abramovich tells me ‘Jose, it’s enough’,” Mourinho said on February 27. “If one day he tells me ‘Jose it’s enough’ I will go to my house in London and I wait for another English club. “When I left the first time I had lots of countries to go to and lots of clubs to go to. The 52-year-old Portuguese manager is halfway through a four-year contract signed on his return to Stamford Bridge in June 2013 and has verbally agreed a two-year extension, according to reports. Mourinho won two Premier League titles in his first spell – including in 2005 Chelsea’s first championship in 50 years – before departing after little more than three years as manager. Press Association Jose Mourinho is to be rewarded for guiding Chelsea to a first Premier League title in five years with a new contract. “In this moment when I leave I have another 19 clubs in the Premier League and 22 clubs in the Championship. So the options are not so much. “But I repeat I am in Mr Abramovich’s hands. Until he wants me to stay, I will stay – and that is what I want. “I am not thinking about leaving, I want to stay at Chelsea for the rest of my career.” Mourinho was blocked from moving to Tottenham after his first departure from Chelsea. “I couldn’t go,” said Mourinho, after confirming the approach from Spurs. “I couldn’t train in England for two years.” It is same to assume a similar clause would be inserted were things to go wrong at Chelsea, as Mourinho would still be very much a man in demand after 22 trophies in his vaunted career. A third European Cup with a third club, after wins in 2004 with Porto and 2010 with Inter, will surely be on Mourinho’s agenda next term. Mourinho has spoken of strengthening his squad for next season and there could be some departures, including long-serving pair Petr Cech and Didier Drogba. One player who is keen to stay despite reported interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona is Cesar Azpilicueta, the right-footed Spain international who has impressed at left-back. Azpilicueta told RMC Radio: “I’m currently playing in the best team in England, I’m not thinking about another team.” last_img read more
