Jose Mourinho would have “no problem” returning to Real Madrid as coach, stoking the rumours linking him as a potential successor to Santiago Solari.
It has been a turbulent season for both Mourinho and Madrid, as the Portuguese manager lost his job at Manchester United in December, while Los Blancos have underwhelmed under two coaches. Solari took charge of Madrid in October last year, and although he has overseen a moderate improvement from the end of Julen Lopetegui’s brief spell, in no way have they caught the imagination of supporters. When asked if he would go back to a former club, Mourinho told beIN SPORTS: “To a club that I have been before? If I think the right club, the right structure, the right ambitions, I will have no problem at all. “I think it’s really a reason of pride when a club where you worked before wanting you back. They [Madrid] are the iconic club, I think so, you know, [they have won] 13 Champions Leagues [titles].”
