Jose Mourinho opens up on possible return to Chelsea
AS Roma manager Jose Mourinho has suggested he is open to another return to Chelsea to replace sacked Graham Potter.
Mourinho admitted he could leave Roma as talk of a potential return to Stamford Bridge intensifies.
The Portuguese legendary manager spoke to DAZN when he mentioned Roma Chief Executive Officer, CEO, Pietro Berardi, who had insisted the former Manchester United boss will remain with the club while others.
“I don’t talk to friends, comrades, or journalists. If a few months ago our CEO [Pietro] Berardi said he was sure I would stay, that is his interpretation,” Mourinho said.
Speaking further, the Portugal international then added that contracts are not the most important thing in football, adding that he could leave the Serie A giants.
“The situation is clear, from a contractual point of view I still have one year on my contract. Football is football, sometimes contracts aren’t the most important thing.
The Blues are currently in the market in search of a new manager after the club’s owner decided to sack Graham Potter on Sunday.
