Mourinho: Not possible to retire at Chelsea

Jose Mourinho says he will manage for another 15 years but admits he is unlikely to end his career with Chelsea.

The Blues boss does not think it is ‘possible’ in the modern game for any manager to remain at one club for almost 20 years.

“If you ask me how many years I’m still going to coach, I’d risk 15 more,” said Mourinho.

“I’m in the middle: I did 15, I have 15 more to do. I’ll finish at 67. Maybe later if I can.

“Can I stay 15 more years at Chelsea Football Club? I don’t think so.

“I don’t think modern football allows it anymore, so normally I will not finish my career at Chelsea. I would like to, but I don’t think it’s possible.”

The book is a pictorial story of Mourinho’s management career to date and celebrates his achievements.

“The fact that the book comes in a moment when my football results are contradictory to the history I have in this book is just a detail,” Mourinho said.

“I don’t need the book to know what I did. The people who like me don’t need the book to know what I did.

“The ones who don’t like me are enjoying the moment now, and obviously they are not going to buy the book and spend some time looking at it.”
