Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon believes current Real boss Jose Mourinho could join Paris Saint-Germain in the summer which has put a slight dampener on the talk over a sensational return to Stamford Bridge.
The Portuguese manager has fallen out with too many powerful names at the Santiago Bernabeu and it is certain that he will not remain there beyond the summer, so there will be plenty of talk over where the self proclaimed Special One will end up next in the coming months.
Calderon believes Mourinho has burned his bridges in Madrid but the club should have known what they were getting into:
“Real Madrid have a problem with the attitude of Mourinho.
“We are not used to a coach who complains about referees, UEFA or injuries. We are always talking about what is going on on the field so that’s something I don’t like.
“All I’m saying is that it’s the president’s fault, Mourinho is not cheating anyone when he’s behaving like that, everywhere he’s been he’s acted in the same way. So the one that is signing him is assuming that’s what he’s getting.
“It seems that he’s going to leave and also very probably he will go to Paris St Germain. I don’t really know he says he’s going to stay but I don’t think so. Things have gone too far and Real Madrid are not willing to accept, I think, anymore of his behaviour.
“I think it’s clear that those players are not happy with that behaviour, mainly the Spaniard’s they are not used to that kind of attitude some of them I don’t recognise playing in some matches. Some of the players I know very well and there is a big fight between some players and the coach.”
It is quite possible that Carlo Ancelotti and Mourinho could switch jobs at the end of the season and winning a league title in a fifth different country would represent the type of challenge that would appeal to the former Chelsea and Inter boss. But that isn’t what many fans want to hear as they are desperate for Mourinho to return to Stamford Bridge to sort out the mess that we’re in.
It’s important to remember that Calderon is speaking on a hunch just the same as Ruud Gullit was when he predicted the opposite and said that he believes that Jose will be back in West London in a few months time.
If Chelsea do miss out on Mourinho then it is difficult to predict who the club will call upon and which manager will take it as I don’t see Klopp leaving Dortmund, Jupp Heynckes (Marin Sheen) won’t put off retirement in a position that has proved volatile and although David Moyes is an interesting option, he isn’t a man that is used to working with a sporting director.
