The Return Of Mourinho: Jose In Talks For Managerial Comeback?

Time to come back, Jose?
Time to come back, Jose?

Fresh from his ice-capades, former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho may be venturing back to one of his old haunts as he plans his return to football management.

Inter Milan is reportedly becoming increasingly likely as his next destination, reports The Mirror; Inter being the team he led to a historic continental treble back in 2010.

The publication reports that ‘is set to meet Inter director Beppe Marotta in Milan on Thursday’ as pressure on current coach Luciano Spalletti increases.

Just last month, speaking to beIN Sports, Mourinho told of his affection for the nerazzurri;

“I have to be objective and respectful of them and to say a team who won everything from day one until the last day.

“They won all the competitions, won the Treble, beat the best team in the world Barcelona 3-1, beat Bayern Munich 2-0 in the Champions League Final, won the League in Italy with a fantastic number of points, won the cup and won three Finals in 10 days, so I have to say they’re the best team.” (Football Italia)

Mourinho was manager of Inter between 2008 and 2010, eventually leaving to take over at Real Madrid.

He has been out of management since being sacked of Manchester United at the end of 2018, after two-and-a-half years in charge.

Though Inter are currently third in Serie A, Spalletti position at the helm is said to be in jeopardy after a poor run of recent results that has included seeing them crash out of the Coppa Italia to Lazio. They are currently 20 points off league leaders Juventus.

Former Inter chairman Massimo Moratti has spoken out on Mourinho’s possible appointment;  

"Would I like Mourinho back at Inter? Yes, I'm very fond of him," he said.
