Chelsea ace Mata tightlipped on Mourinho rumours

Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata is tightlipped on talk of Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho returning to the club.

The Portuguese boss is being touted as a potential successor to interim manager Rafael Benitez in the summer.

Mata said: "They (Chelsea) keep fond memories of Mourinho. They did very well, won titles and the fans will keep a great memory.

"But today Mourinho is the coach of Real Madrid and Benitez of Chelsea. We have to be focused on that."
