London, March 6: Jose Mourinho has revealed that he wants to return to coaching and hopes to take charge of a club in Italy or Spain next season.
The Portuguese trainer is currently out of work after being sacked by Chelsea and the rumour mill has ben in over drive about his next destination.
While Barcelona have moved to cool links to them, Inter and Milan are both strong possibilities while Real Madrid could come into the offing as pressure mounts on Bernd Schuster.When asked about where he would like to go next, Mourinho told Gazetta dello Sport: "Italy or Spain.
"Afterwards I want to go back to England and finally be national coach of Portugal."
Amid speculation that Mourinho had met with Inter chief Massimo Moratti, he admitted that he was a fan but had never the Nerazzuri president.
"I respect him very much as a person that loves football and his club deeply," he added. "However I have never talked with him."
In what proved to be a concise interview, Mourinho was asked about Milan's exit from the Champions League to Arsenal in midweek and he was to the point.
"I respect Milan and Ancelotti but Arsenal deserved to qualify over the two games," he said.
