Real Madrid president Florentino Perez revealed at a press conference that The Special One, Jose Mourinho will leave his role as coach of the Blancos at the end of the current season..
Today was confirmed what previously was speculated a lot.Jose Mourinho is leaving Spain,and returns to England,according to his words ” I will go where i am loved”. Footballtarget.com has already reported about the probable departure of Mourinho from Santiago Bernabeu and his move back to Chelsea.
Recent defeat in Copa del Rey from Atletico Madrid and previously knocking out from Champions league by Borussia Dortmund as well as the celebration of the league title by their rivals, FC Barcelona have resulted in Mourinho´s exit after three years of leading Real Madrid.
“The club and manager believe the time is right to bring our relationship to an end,” Perez said. “I would like to thank Jose Mourinho for all his hard work over the last three years. The team has improved over his time here and I would like to wish him all the best.
“The achievements of this season have not been sufficient for the demands of a club such as Real Madrid, or a coach like Mourinho.”
Perez admitted the subject of Mourinho’s future has been on the club’s agenda for some time, but insisted a final decision has only been reached now and there is no agreement in place for his replacement despite suggestions Carlo Ancelotti has already agreed on a deal.
“We have come to this decision just now, although it’s something that has been at the back of our mind for some time,” Perez said. “We have no pre-contract signed with any manager. This is something we have to look at over the coming days.”
