The Special Return

Is Jose Mourinho eyeing up the Tottenham job?

Inter boss to seek gainful employment in the UK

Sleepy Jose

After a 4-0 pummeling of Roma on Sunday, Jose Mourinho’s Inter Milan are cruising at the top of of Serie A, and on the day that Juande Ramos dug his hole a little deeper, the Portuguese used a post-match press conference to announce his intention to return to our tiny island:

“I like difficult things. After Inter I will return to England, but I want to win here first.

“I have a contract with Inter, but when that finishes I will definitely return to the Premier League, I like it a lot.”

It’s feasible that The Special One could come and help Tottenham win a game (a “difficult thing”), but Piers Morgan’s Mail on Sunday column yesterday gave insight to another potential, and perhaps more likely employer. The shameless reality TV star former newspaper editor claimed to have sat next to Rio Ferdinand at a recent charity dinner, who said there was only one man who could take over at Old Trafford when Fergie retires: Jose Mourinho.

Where do you think Jose will end up? Let us know with a comment below.

    Hey, dont get those hopes up for us suffering Spurs supporters. If he wants a challenge than this will surrely be it

    Well, why not to move to Switzerland and invest his fortune here. He then could lead Grasshopper Club Zurich to win the Chamions League.

    I would love Jose at Spurs but truth is he would never manage a championship club and he won’t be back in the UK until after we go down, so no point in hoping for him. I would get Graham Roberts in, give hime freedom to buy players and put Gary Mabbatt next to him – who cares about managerial experience? We need passion, we need dedication, we need guts and a heart – not the Levy money making machine. And bring Venables in to give us direction. Thanks

    Her we go.. All along i have said Mourinho would take over at Spurs within a few years. Watch it come to pass…

    This is crap speculation. Mourinho may indeed end up back in England, but Spurs? C’mon.

    dont you dare levy.. dont you dare… we dont need him anyway. not even the special one can sort this out.
    i’m afraid weve gotta stick with what we have.
    we’ll get off the bottom.
    but tell me this…. why are we playing lennon on the left…? someone dont know what RW means.
    thats all i gotta say.

    its got to be the girly haircuts, watch Bentley after another one of his crosses goes sailing into the clouds brushing his quiff down, Bale with his ridiculous girls hairclip, Woodgate and Corluka headbanded up like jessies, Ramos, i say get them in and give em all the Bosnian refugee scalp.. followed by the “if dont like it.. fuck off” Play like men.

    Jose to spurs, i havent laughed this hard since we spent 15.8mil on Bentley, then Camolli wonders why he is going to get the boot

  • shannon // October 21, 2008 at 9:53 am

  • russell // October 21, 2008 at 6:57 pm

  • dando // October 21, 2008 at 7:52 pm

    you should get jol

  • fightingspirit // October 21, 2008 at 7:57 pm

    why do spurs fans refuse to blame ramos. the team is a disaster, he can’t motivate, he thinks winning cups is as good as winning/staying in the league, he looks lost and weird on the touchline, his team selection is erratic, he believes in dismantling the back four every two weeks to let ledley king play, he only ever won some uefa cups anyway – no leagues. levy made a bad decision – you knew that when he sacked jol – why not ask for a new manager. ramos isn’t getting you out of this now – too deep

    Whoever you get is doomed – not even Sir Alex could do a decent job with those chumps convinced of their ability to do a better job above him. It won’t make much difference whether you fire Ramos or give him a pay rise, so might as well keep him and save yourselves a few million and the pain of another false dawn when the next lame duck manager comes along.
