Wilkins can see no way back at the Bridge for former boss Mourinho, the most successful manager in Chelsea’s history who was sacked by Abramovich in 2007.
He told The Sun: “I’d love to see Jose back and so would the fans.
“The Premier League needs characters like him and he’s a big man for a big job.
“But there’s too much past history between him and the owner at Chelsea.
“And because Jose also likes to spend money on the players he wants, there would be a conflict there straight away.”
