Kevin Keegan would love to see Jose Mourinho back in English football so he could pit his wits against the Portuguese tactician.

Keegan has returned to club management nearly three years after quitting his last role with Manchester City.

Keegan has admitted he would love the chance to face Mourinho, who left Chelsea last year.

. "I thought Mourinho was just fantastic, I thought he was a breath of fresh air," said Keegan.

"The sooner he comes back into the Premier League the better.

"You need the mix - the guys who are tacticians, and the guys who are characters, and the Premier League is a fantastic mix of managers."

Keegan faced Mourinho during his last season with City and he had a good record with four points from their two games against each other.
