Porto coach Jose Mourinho, the man tipped to replace Claudio Ranieri at Chelsea, will attend the Premiership club’s Champions League semi-final second leg tie against Monaco.
“I will go to Stamford Bridge as an enemy,” the Portuguese coach said.
“I don’t think enemies are welcome but I’ve already got a ticket – and a bodyguard.”
Porto beat Deportivo Coruna 1-0 in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final on Tuesday to earn a place in the final against either Monaco or Chelsea.
Mourinhohas become one of the most sought after coaches in Europe following his exploits with Porto. This year’s achievement follows on from last season’s UEFA Cup success and Mourinho is now expected to be poached by opne of Europe’s bigger clubs.
“I don’t feel any pressure at the moment because I don’t talk with clubs, directors, presidents or owners. I’m very focused on my work.
“There’s a person who looks after all that for me but I’m very isolated from all of it. I’m concentrating on my work and on the final and I’m not interested in talking about my future.”
“I will go to Chelsea because I’m a professional and what I want most now is to win the final,” added Mourinho.
