After Jose Mourinho’s triumphant Champions League semi-final victory against Barcelona over two legs, you have to wonder where he goes from here. If he’s able to coach his Internationale team to victory in the final against Bayern Munich, the world is Mourinho’s oyster. New manager at Real Madrid? Sure, if the price is right (and he would undoubtedly command a massive salary). Manchester City? The owner could afford The Special One, but would Mourinho want to step down to rebuild a club that would require 2-3 years of his guidance to turn into a top Premier League and Champions League contender.
If Mourinho can outwit Louis van Gaal and win the Champions League Final in late May, Chelsea will kick themselves for letting Mourinho go when they did. I don’t know about you, but I miss seeing Mourinho in the Premier League. Maybe he would be ready to replace Ferguson when he departs Manchester United? But that could be several years before that happens and who knows what could occur in that time.
Congratulations to Mourinho on being a masterful tactician who enabled his Inter Milan team to play a sound game, which suffocated Barcelona’s attacks. If he can beat Bayern Munich in the final, he will be remembered as one of the best managers in recent times. He could go anywhere, manage any team or country and they would welcome him with open arms.
