Inter coach Jose Mourinho says he will manage Real Madrid – although he does not know when.
The Portuguese coach, who has led his side to the Champions League final, has been heavily tipped to take over the Bernabeu hot seat.
But while Mourinho admitted he would like to manage the Spanish outfit, he says such a move is not imminent.
“What they are writing that I have a foot half in Spain and half in Milan is false. It’s true I will coach Real Madrid,” he told Panorama magazine
“I’ve coached a big club in England, I’m coaching a big club in Italy and I will coach one in Spain.
“I’ve won everything in three countries (Portugal, England and Italy), there’s nothing missing for me.
“But it makes me laugh when certain club chairmen compare me to their coaches who haven’t even won a Cup of Tuscany or Reggio Calabria.”
Despite his success at Inter since succeeding Roberto Mancini in 2008, Mourinho has continued to attract criticism in Italy.
He added: “People who come up to me and give me a pat on the back, smile and say, ‘you’re the best, you’re great, keep going’, and then as soon as they can they attack me.
“They ask me for an autograph, a photo with them and then suddenly they change. I don’t like this, even some coaches do this.”
