So much is he in love with England that ex-Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed he will join an English club after his time at his current club Real Madrid despite describing the Spanish giants as the biggest club in the world.
The self-titled 'Special One' has never been shy of stating his fondness for the whole package that comes with English football, which he experienced during his hugely successful time at Chelsea.
In a report in The Sun, Mourinho stopped short of indicating he wanted to exit Real Madrid where his contract has three years left. He said, I miss England and my next job will be in England. There is unfinished business. And I think England wants me back, no? It was the most enjoyable time of my career. My Chelsea time was amazing as a football manager and family man. My family and I enjoyed it so much. We made so many friends here. We still keep in touch, we still come back. In football there are a few victories here I would like to repeat. I will talk to my agent and get a project for my career.
I still have three years at Real Madrid. It is the biggest club in the world but it is also the most difficult club in the world. They came to me for the third time and I could not say no to them for the third time - I had to go. And I had to go to Italy, that was important for me because I wanted to try there. Everyone said it was the home of tactics so I said let me try there.
But it is not England, England is special. People in Italy, Spain and Portugal ask me why I love England so much and I can't explain - I just do. I want to be happy in my work. I want to be happy with my football.
