Mourinho rules out Italy return

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho says he would prefer to return to England rather than have a second stint in Italy.

The Special One future in Spain is uncertain and it's thought that one day in the near future he'll coach again in the Premier League.

"I miss England and my next job will be in England," Mourinho said. "There is unfinished business.

"And I think England wants me back, no? It was the most enjoyable time of my career."

Speaking to BBC Radio 5, Mourinho said he is looking forward to Real Madrid's clash with Tottenham with greater relish than last year's quarter-final between Chelsea and Inter.

"I didn't want Chelsea-Inter, because last season it was difficult to play against Chelsea.

"I did it, and I did everything I could to help my team, but I was not comfortable. I don't like to play against my friends.

"Any team is difficult and any team is a motivation for us. Tottenham are a good team: they beat Inter, they beat Milan, they have ambitions, they have a very good team and a good manager.

"You can feel that it is a happy team, and happy teams are dangerous teams."
