Jose Mourinho Linked Back To EPL Side Chelsea, But Ronaldo Sees Him Staying Until After The Season.
MADRID (Sporting Alert) — Real Madrid FC forward Cristiano Ronaldo is still unsure about the future of his manager Jose Mourinho with the La Liga club.
Mourinho has been heavily linked with a move away from the Spanish champions with Chelsea, Manchester United, PSG and Manchester City all amongst the clubs in Europe reportedly interested.
The Portugal international believes his fellow countryman will stay at the Santiago Bernabéu until the end of the season, but is clueless about what will happen next.
Asked if Mourinho will remain with Real Madrid FC past the summer, Ronaldo said, “I don’t know.
“I think he will continue until the end of the season at least, because he’s a coach who always wants to win and we have several challenges ahead which we can achieve.
“After that he will decide what’s best for him, for his professional group and for the club.
“But I don’t know what either he or the club thinks and therefore I prefer not to talk about this subject.”
Cristiano Ronaldo Looking For To Man United Return
The hype surrounding the Champions League last round of 16 clash between Madrid and Manchester United next week has also been welcomed by the speedy striker, who admits that he’s looking forward to knocking his former club out of the tournament this season.
He claims that the La Liga side is much better than the Red Devils from the EPL.
“In my opinion Read Madrid FC have a better team, but we have to show that on the pitch because United are a very united team and always have been in recent years,” Ronaldo was quoted as saying to the official Uefa Champions League magazine.
“They’re a team that always do well, every year they’re at the top and therefore a team we respect a lot.
“It will be an extremely difficult match, especially in Manchester.”
