Jose Mourinho: Former Chelsea boss plans to come back to England
Jose Mourinho has reiterated his desire to return to work in the Premier League, but underlined any club wanting him must show desire.
Mourinho has not worked in England since he left Chelsea in 2007 after three years in charge at Stamford Bridge.
Now at the helm of Real Madrid following a stint with Inter Milan, where he won the UEFA Champions League, Mourinho is constantly linked with a return to the Premier League.
"I will go where people really want me and, when that moment arrives, they show me they really want me," he said.
"But I have to repeat always this: I am at Real Madrid. I like very much to be [there].
"I want one day to be back in English football, yes. I always said that."
Mourinho, widely regarded as one of the greatest managers of all time, also revealed his success was partly down to his ability to immerse himself in a club in the same manner as a supporter.
"When I go to a club, I wear the shirt, I feel the shirt like it's my first one or my last one," he told Radio Five Live.
"I feel the fans as part of myself. I create eternal links with fans.
"I go to play against Chelsea and I feel (it), I go to Italy and I feel (it).
"I work for the clubs, I work for the people that trust me, and of course the owners and the directors, but the clubs are the fans.
"For me, it's one of my qualities. I become immediately one of them and I feel that I am one of them with a privileged position to fight for the club and to try to bring to all of them happiness."
