Mourinho draws up blueprint for England success

Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho wants to stay involved in English football - so much so that he has drawn up a blueprint for the FA to consider.

The Guardian says Mourinho's blueprint includes restarting the building of the National Football Centre at Burton, the creation of an organisation based on club structures and a full-time medical department unconnected with any Premier League team.

Although he has made no decisions about whether he would accept a job offer, Mourinho has certainly not ruled out becoming Steve McClaren's successor.

A report in yesterday's press suggested Mourinho was using the FA's interest to land a top job in Spain or Italy.

However, Mourinho's media consultant, Eladio Parames, said: "These are lies; Jose is not waiting for an approach from these clubs.

"Jose has had no approach from any club and no one has contacted Jorge [Mendes]. If there is an approach from the FA, Jose will decide."

A friend of Mourinho said yesterday: "In my opinion if they want him - and I believe they do because there's a lot of pressure from the players and people in general in England - and if they accept his plans, I think he could be England's next boss."
