Mourinho's future is on the line tonight against Champions League opponents Manchester United.
"I want to retire at 70 and I have 20 more years to work. That's because I enjoy it just like it was the first day. There is no crisis. It is easier to understand with a dinner with the Spanish media. Against Manchester you’ll see my players on the pitch in front of me and you’ll see that there’s no crisis.
"After Real I’ll return to England. Normally that would be my next step, but I do think it will be as a substitute for Ferguson because I think we should finish our careers at the same time. He at 90 years old and me at 70,” he said.
