Chelsea Boss, Mourinho Snubbed Talk Of Replacing Ancelotti

5 years ago

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho rejected a potential return to Real Madrid as manager, according to Spanish sports writer, Guillem Balague.


Balague claims Madrid had drawn up a list of potential replacements that included Chelsea boss Mourinho – a man who only ended an oft-tempestuous three-year spell at the Bernabeu in 2013.



“The idea is that Real now look for another coach – that is what normally happens when Real Madrid do not win,” he told Revista de La Liga after Barcelona’s triumph.


“Real have spoken to Julen Lopetegui at Porto, to Jurgen Klopp, to Rafa Benitez and Jose Mourinho.



They have already spoken to those four to see if they would be interested in coaching Real Madrid. They have spoken to Jose Mourinho – he said no to them, of course.



“Out of those four, Rafa is favoured by some but not others. Mourinho is favoured by some and not by others and Lopetegui is deemed as something for the future, but they have sounded out all of them.



“Klopp isn’t an automatic yes for the job, and it may be a little bit too early for Zinedine Zidane.



“There was a plan at the beginning of the season, but Real Madrid Castilla haven’t been doing too well so, again, there is doubt.”
