After Real Madrid’s thrilling loss to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, Mourinho again hinted that he will be leaving the Bernabeu this summer and possibly heading back to England. During his press conference, he stated that he wants to be in a place where he is wanted (which, according to “The Special One” is England) and that in Spain people hate him. He did not confirm whether or not he will leave yet, saying he will “speak” after the season is over.
I guess Mourinho has forgotten about all the grief he received daily from the English media while he was there and after three years in the Spanish Capital has not gotten used to the media style. However, it’s not just the media that approach things in this manner. The culture there can be very sarcastic and forward.
If he chooses to leave Madrid and head back to England, well, farewell and good riddance, Jose. Just know that you’re not as special as you thought you were.
I’d love to see Vicente del Bosque return the bench for Los Blancos after the next 2014 World Cup. But what to do in the meantime, Rafa Benitez? I mean, he did guide Valencia to the Champions League final two years in a row while at the helm. Just a thought.
