Jose Mourinho is very much leaving the door open for a return to Inter Milan in the future.
He was in Milan this weekend to visit his former club Inter alongside the Brazilian Ronaldo and was in the stands watching on as they swept Sampdoria aside in a convincing 3-1 win.
While Mourinho has made it clear he doesn’t intend to return to Inter this summer, he hasn’t closed the door on it happening later on in his career.
Speaking about his return to Inter this weekend, Mourinho said: “This is like coming back home to a family. It feels like it’s been six days more than six years since I’ve been away.
“The greatest thing about football, more important than results or victories, is the human rapport and friendship that remains.
“Could I return [to Inter] one day? Why not. I returned to Chelsea, so why not back to Inter too? I just want everything to go well for the current president and Roberto Mancini at Inter.”
I think it says a lot about the work that Mourinho does that he’s welcomed back to all his clubs with open arms, even Chelsea who got rid of him. He might ruffle some feathers but always makes a bed he can be welcomed back to and not many managers can say that about their career.
I’m convinced Mourinho is going to replace Louis van Gaal as Manchester United manager at some point over the next few months and who knows, maybe a few years down the line he’ll leave having helped the club recover enough that he’d be welcomed back to Old Trafford any time as well.
