England is a paradise for coaches whereas Serie A clubs are looking for short-term fixes and are obsessed with the next result, according to Inter coach Jose Mourinho.
The Portuguese is on course to lead Inter to a fourth consecutive Serie A title in his first season at the club, with his side 10 points ahead of Juventus and Milan with six games to go.
The winner of two Premier League titles during a three-year spell at Chelsea, Mourinho has previously said he would like to return to coach in England one day.
“England is a paradise for the coaches who can plan for the future without the pressure of winning in the short term,” he told the club’s website (www.inter.it).
“(Arsene) Wenger works in tranquillity. Arsenal haven’t won a title in four years but he continues his fantastic work with young players.
“I think (Liverpool boss Rafa) Benitez will miss out on winning the Premier League for the fifth time but he continues his fantastic work and his contract gets extended.
“In Italy I think 10 coaches have already been replaced this season. Here there’s the obsession with results, points. Those playing for the championship must become champions or it’s a drama.
“Those playing to stay up must stay in Serie A and if they don’t it’s a drama and the coach is sure to be sacked. Italian coaches are good technically but they are also good at handling this type of pressure.
“My contract is for three seasons,” said Mourinho when asked if he would remain longer than the four years his predecessor Roberto Mancini was in charge.
