Chelsea boss Mourinho: London is home

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho admits London feels like home.

Mourinho has made it clear he wants Chelsea to be his last job in club football.

He told the London Evening Standard: “I’m not a person with a big social life. I just want the simple things in life but even the simple things I lost in Italy, Spain and Portugal.

“I think London is the only place in Europe where I can keep these little things of life. I can go to school and wait for my son and daughter and the parents feel me as another parent.

“I can go to walk on Sloane Street or Old Bond Street and if somebody disturbs me it is not an English person for sure. It’s some tourist that sees me and they can’t control themselves. The English person is much more polite and respectful in relation to the private life of the person.

“I can go to a restaurant, I can go to a cab and the driver be an Arsenal or Tottenham supporter and he enjoys speaking with me. This is not possible in Italy and Spain! I also like the number of clubs in London. The way we have this in London during the week is fantastic. After that you go to the weekend, you play the derbies and everything changes but during the week people live with the different colours in the same city and everything is normal.”
