Jose Mourinho insists he is happy at Real Madrid despite speculation linking him with a return to Inter.
The Portuguese coach has been touted for a possible return to Italy amid speculation about the future of current Inter boss Rafa Benitez.
Mourinho led Inter to an unprecedented treble of UEFA Champions League, Serie A and Coppa Italia titles last season before moving to the Bernabeu.
Mourinho remains adamant he is going nowhere despite receiving a gentle admonishment from Real’s president, Massimo Morati, following a characteristic outburst to the media about the unfair treatment he claims his side is receiving from match officials.
He is quoted as telling Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport: “I have a four-year contract with Real Madrid, and I’m going to continue here for a long time.
“There are many things to do in Madrid, and not only on-field work.
“I hope that Inter don’t need me now, as this would mean they have taken the wrong path.
“In my future it will be the Premier League or Italy. Problems at Real Madrid? I never have problems.”
Mourinho believes that Benitez’s outburst against Moratti after Inter’s success at the Club World Cup showed a lack of respect for what he did at the club.
“I don’t want to know when or if Benitez is ousted,” Mourinho added.
“I am only interested in Inter, the president, my friends, the players, the fans who in two years gave me everything.
“I want Inter to win everything apart from the Champions League, where there is Real Madrid.
“Rafa’s words (after the Club World Cup)? They deserve no comment. I expected at least a thank you from the success that I gave him.
“Ask all the Inter fans what they think of me and him.”
