Mourinho Praises English Soccer, Says He Will Return

Jose Mourinho hailed English soccer on Monday in an impassioned message of congratulations to the English Football Association on its 150th anniversary. During the recorded speech, Mourinho reiterated that he would return to the English Premier League again some day.

“To say congratulations to the English FA is to say congratulations to football,’’ Mourinho said. “It’s to say congratulations to everybody that loves football around the world. For me, the English FA means not just the passion of football in England, but also the passion of football around the world.

"I think they are most responsible for why football is what it is around the world,” he added. “So I feel also that I should congratulate myself about your 150 years, because as everybody knows I am completely in love with the game and a person in love with the game must be in love with the English FA.”

Mourinho is widely expected to leave his current job as coach of Real Madrid at the end of the season. Los Blancos are 18 points behind La Liga leader Barcelona at the season’s halfway point, and his disagreements with the club’s management, staff and players have been well documented. The Portuguese has been linked with a move to big-spending Paris Saint-Germain, or he could consider a return to the EPL.
