Mourinho Targets 12-Years at Chelsea

MOST COMMENTED

Speaking ahead of Chelsea’s crucial Premier League clash with Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday, Jose Mourinho set himself the ambitious target of being Blues manager for another 12 years, even though he’s currently in the midst of his “worst contract” in the past six seasons. According to reports, the Portuguese signed a four-year contract worth close to 10 million pounds ($16.3 million) per season, which is considerably less than the 14.8 million euros ($20.2 million) he earned in the previous three seasons at Real Madrid.

Remarking on his current four-year contract at Stamford Bridge, Mourinho said: "Realistically I hope at the end of those four years we sit, analyze the situation and that will be the point where we both – club and me – are happy to carry on or happy to separate," he said. "But I would like [to stay for], say, 12 years. I'm 51 next month. I'd say 12 years, and then two to go to a World Cup with a national team. I would prefer the Portuguese national team. England second [choice], yes.”

He added: "The best way to [run a club] is to do it with stability. For the players, if you want to help them grow up, you do that much better with stability: in ideas, philosophy, model of play, style of leadership. This all comes from stability at the highest level: with the owners and board and, after that, the manager. The second line of the hierarchy. That stability is very important. You look, for example, to Manchester United and everybody feels David [Moyes] will have his time to do his work in a calm way. I think that's fantastic."
