LONDON (AP) Jose Mourinho said Monday he would like to coach Real Madrid — though only after completing his contract at Chelsea.
“Every coach would like to do it,” he said. “It would be an honor to work in a club like Real Madrid.”
Mourinho, who has guided Chelsea to the last two Premier League titles, has a contract through 2010.
There has been speculation the Portuguese coach could leave the London club after this season — and replace Fabio Capello at Madrid — but Mourinho said he was staying at Stamford Bridge.
“I say clearly no (to moving) until 2010 because I have a contract with Chelsea,” Mourinho said. “I want to stay at Chelsea. I am in love with Chelsea. I am in love with English football.”
Chelsea won the League Cup this season and is second in the Premier League, nine points behind Manchester United. The Blues are still competing in the F.A. Cup and Champions League.
