José Mourinho will come back to San Siro today to watch Inter v Sampdoria.
The former Blues boss will be back in his old home for the second time since he left Inter in 2010, but it will be the first time with the Nerazzurri: in fact, he already got back to Giuseppe Meazza in November 2010, when he was managing Real Madrid, to face AC Milan in Champions League.
Mourinho spoke to Italian newspaper La Stampa ahead of his trip to Italy:
“I’ll be in Milan for one day,” the Portuguese revealed.
“I am grateful to my president Massimo Moratti, who I want to personally thank.
“I left Inter in 2010 and since then I have worked hard at Real Madrid and Chelsea, so it has been hard to find the time to have lunch with the Moratti family. We agreed to see each other a couple of weeks ago.
“After being together for lunch we will go to San Siro, bringing with us the spirit of Inter, with the hope and happiness to see Inter win. It will be very emotional for me …San Siro, the Inter fans.
“But one thing I want to clarify, I will not be in charge next season. Inter have a project and that is Erick Thohir and Roberto Mancini.
“Their ideas have my full support and my hope is that the project of the coach and the president continues with great success.”
Mourinho, who has been rumoured as next Manchester United manager recently, said his future coaching destination is still undefined.
“My next club? I really don’t know,” Mourinho said.
“One thing is certain; I love football and I will return on the fields with the same passion and ambition as always.
“Right now I have respect for every coach and every club. I’m not looking for a club; it is the clubs who seek me.”
