Jose Mourinho’s tactical prowess may be failing him in Chelsea at the moment but what would never change about the Portuguese are his antecedent and class. Despite his terrible campaign in the Premier League, former Real Madrid Chief Ramon Calderon believes the under-fire Chelsea boss could make a return to the Santiago Bernabeu, per reports.
Mourinho has endured the most torrid start to the premier League campaign and in his entire career as a manager. He won the league last season but his team are currently on the 16th place on the log and have almost the worst defensive record. However, Calderon revealed that despite Rafa Benitez’ relative positive start, Los Blancos might could still do away with bring back the Portuguese tactician.
Calderon granted an interview with talkSport and revealed that Florentino Perez is still a fan Mourinho.
Calderon said: “It is not a secret that the current Real Madrid president has backed Mourinho many times. He likes him a lot and you can’t rule out seeing him again on the bench at the Bernabeu. I know it seems strange, but if Benitez doesn’t have a good season and Mourinho gets sacked by Chelsea, I insist you can’t rule out seeing him here again.”
Real Madrid is currently 3 points behind Barca. Both teams will face each other in Santiago Bernabeu on November 21st.
He continued with an explanation: “I know that the president tried to have him here instead of Benitez, but Mourinho said he didn’t want it and that it wasn’t the right time to come back. But after two or three years I can see him here again – it happened the same with Chelsea, they sacked him but then he came back. In football that is normal. The current president has a lot of interest in Mourinho, he backed him a lot during his time at Madrid and Mourinho is his favourite coach.”
Mourinho was at the helm of Madrid’s affair between 2010-13. It is left to be seen if he’ll remain with Chelsea.
