Ex-Real Madrid president, Ramon Calderon, disclosed that Jose Mourinho could replace Rafael Benitez at the club if the opportunity presents itself.
Mourinho is under serious pressure at Stamford Bridge, after a terrible start to the season. The Blues have suffered 7 defeats in their opening 12 Premier League games, but club owner, Roman Abramovich, is prepared to give the Portuguese a chance to turn around Chelsea’s fortunes.
During his three years at the Santiago Bernabeu, Mourinho was involved in a number of bust-ups with several players, but guided Madrid to a league title and three Champions League semi-finals and Calderon claims he will be welcomed back at the club.
“It’s not a secret that the current Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez, has backed Mourinho many times,” he told Talksport.
“He likes him a lot and you can’t rule out seeing him again on the bench at the Bernabeu.
“I know it seems strange, but if Benitez doesn’t have a good season and Mourinho gets sacked by Chelsea, I insist you can’t rule out seeing him here again.
“I know that the president tried to have him here instead of Benitez, but Mourinho said he didn’t want it and that it wasn’t the right time to come back.
“But after two or three years I can see him here again. It happened the same with Chelsea, they sacked him but then he came back. In football that is normal.
“The current president has a lot of interest in Mourinho, he backed him a lot during his time at Madrid and Mourinho is his favourite coach.”
