Chelsea boss AVB: No surprise Mourinho wants Premier League return

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas isn't surprised Jose Mourinho is pining for a return to England.

The Real Madrid coach is eyeing a Premier League move at the end of the season.

Asked why Mourinho was so enamoured with England, Villas-Boas said: "I think this is the best league in the world - we all agree with that - and after all of these years of absence he will want to make his return."

Villas-Boas claimed he would love to pit his wits against his former mentor, who he has barely spoken to since deciding to quit a coaching role at Inter to forge his own managerial career.

"It will be exciting," Villas-Boas said.

"First we have to understand that his coming back would be excellent for the Premier League in terms of excitement and further competition and further competence, so fantastic."
