Mourinho: I couldn't consider facing Chelsea

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says he couldn't contemplate facing his old club when returning to the Premier League.

Mourinho insists a move to Manchester United was never on his agenda.

"If one day I go back to Italy I have to go to Inter,' he explains. 'I don't see myself against Inter. I don't see myself at AC Milan, against thousands and thousands of people that would die for me to be back one day.

"To come to England and not to come to Chelsea, that only happens if Chelsea doesn't want me. If Chelsea doesn't want me, I'm a professional coach and I have to be in another place but when, at the same time I want to leave Real Madrid, I want to come to England, and Chelsea is waiting for me, it's the only decision I can make."
