Jose Mourinho has dropped another strong hint that he could be ready for an imminent return to the Premier League.

The Inter Milan coach has endured a tense relationship with the football authorities and the media in Italy since his appointment with the Serie A side in summer 2008.

His recent return to Stamford Bridge where he masterminded a UEFA Champions League victory over former club Chelsea led to speculation over a possible second spell in England's top-flight.

Liverpool and Manchester City have both been linked with the Portuguese tactician, with Manchester United suggested as another possible destination should Sir Alex Ferguson elect to leave the Old Trafford dugout.

And Mourinho, who is preparing his side for their European quarter-final showdown with CSKA Moscow, pulled no punches when questioned over his time in Italy.

He told Sky Sports: "My situation is clear. I am very happy at Inter, I am not happy in Italian football."

And when pressed as to why, he responded: "Because I don't like it, because they don't like me. Simple."

Any chance of Chelsea fixing the great injustice of letting Mourinho go ?? any chance that the Special One would return to managing at the Bridge ???

There is only one club in England that is made for Jose Mourinho and thats Chelsea. Jose is not divorced from Chelsea. Chelsea only separated from Jose and I do not see why Chelsea and Jose cannot get back together again. As a fan, he is and will remain the best manager that Chelsea will ever have. His record, love for Chelsea is clear on this. I plead with the Chelsea board to put the past behind and bring back the 'special one'. He belongs to Chelsea.

Jose to go to Man City, now that would be a surprise, just as at Chelsea he will have the funds to mould his team. Liverpool and Utd dont have the cashflow for Jose's plans, that would be too much like hard work!

It woulld be good to have him (Jose) back in the Premier League. I do feel that he is the next in charge at Manchester United. I don't think he would go for Liverpool or Man City as there is too much concern over job security. Manchester United have shown loyalty and thats what he likes. He also likes the big stage to give his big performances.

It's time for Abramovich and Jose to swallow their pride and bring Jose back to the Bridge. All this crap with the coaches he has brought in has obviously not worked. The players love him, and his results speak for themselves. He will feel most at home at Chelsea, and going to Liverpool is not an option. Hicks doen't have the money to buy the players he wants and pay him the salary he will want. The Lakers did it with Phil Jackson and they went right back to winning championships. Get it done Roman!
