As speculations continue about the future of Jose Mourinho, who was sacked on Thursday by Chelsea, one of the club’s he has managed in his illustrious career, Real Madrid, said they do not want his services – at least not for now.
Club President, Florentino Perez, said though it was difficult to say what could happen in the future, the Portuguese is not coming back to the Santiago Bernabeu in the nearest future.
Perez affirmed that the club was happy with present manager, Rafa Benitez and so will not be requiring Mourinho’s services.
“No one can see into the future, but right now he’s not coming back to Real Madrid. Rafa Benítez is capable of solving the problems we have. That’s the only option we’re considering.
“I have very good memories of working with Mourinho; he raised our competitive level. It wasn’t a dark period. Under him, we returned to our rightful place,” he declared.
