Andre Villas-Boas has described the potential return of Jose Mourinho to the Premier League as “spectacular”.
The fiesty Real Madrid boss is expected to leave the Spanish giants this summer and is being hotly tipped for a return to Chelsea. A Champions League semi-final exit at the hands of Borussia Dortmund has almost definitely sealed his exit in La Liga and has already hinted that he will be back in England.
AVB knows Mourinho well after working under him during their time together at Chelsea and could see the former apprentice pit his wits against his one-time mentor next season.
Villas-Boas told the weekly press conference: “He obviously wants to come back to England, whether he has a club aligned or not, we never know.
“It’s extremely unlikely when someone makes it that public that something is not set out already but he is a great addition to the Premier League. He has a wonderful history in this league and I think it will be spectacular to have him back.”
When he left (England) he wasn’t that well loved by a few of you guys (the media) and that was something we talked about.
“He was loved in all the clubs where he has won titles, in Real Madrid the same.
“There is maximum respect for what he has achieved, but for it to be at the level of Real Madrid’s expectancy, we will never know. Probably not, but he certainly has won a league against a dream Barcelona team, which is a great achievement.”
