Jose Mourinho all but rules out Serie A return because of his relationship with Inter Milan.

Mourinho has been without a job in football management since being sacked by Manchester United.

While it is understood, there have been many offers on the table for the Portuguese, he has yet to find the one that suits him.

The United experience has left Mourinho with a bitter taste in his mouth. He feels that the clubs restricted him from ding his job and reneged on promises that were made to him.

He has made it clear, that before taking his next job he wants to be sure all is as it is portrayed.

For all the talk of Real, Portugal, Benfica and the likes. Mourinho appears sure that he will not return to Italy.

There is one clear reason behind this thought. That is due to his relationship and affection he still has for Inter Milan, the fans, and former president Moratti.

Jose Mourinho completed the unthinkable at Inter. The treble: Scudetto, Coppa Italia and Champions League in 2010.

Even though he departed for Real Madrid after, he left a hero in the eyes of the Nerazzuri.

In an interview with Tiki Taka, he described his relationship with Inter and his future.

He said:

“Inter is my home and Moratti remains both my President and friend.”

“When I say he, I say family. It’s as if he was my family, and I feel his family in a special way: everyone here is really special.”

“My job also consists of finding the empathy I had with Inter fans. “

“I give my all. I join a club, I take the shirt, I wear it and I live with that shirt.”

“I create empathy with fans and antipathy with opponents, but I believe this empathy is important for creating a bond and a special relationship with them.”

“Afterwards, of course, when you win and trophies arrive, this empathy can be transformed into passion, which is what it was.”

“There were crucial matches in the race for the Scudetto, Coppa Italia and Champions League.”

“The victory in Kiev, for example, was the start of everything.”

“The mega defeat in Barcelona [2-0] was ​​the best defeat of my life.”

“After practically two weeks between the Finals of the Coppa Italia and Champions League, it almost looked like a movie.”

“The perfect end’ to a story that was fantastic for me.”

“Everyone in the squad, not just the players but also everyone one, was a big family.”

“I haven’t worked for seven, eight months so we’ll see what happens.”

“I don’t think I’ll come back to work in Italy. It’s a sensation, but I don’t think my future will be in Italy.”

SO if not Italy, then where for “the Special One?”
