Sam Allardyce hopes to see Mourinho again
The manager Mourinho admitted he would least like to fight among his former managerial colleagues has lamented his departure from Chelsea.
Newcastle boss Sam Allardyce was amused to learn last week that the Portuguese would not relish the prospect of going toe-to-toe with him.
However, Allardyce is hoping he and English football have not seen the last of the man who helped to revive Chelsea’s fortunes during an eventful reign at Stamford Bridge.
Asked what Mourinho had brought to the English game, he said: “Apart from not fancying me in a fight, charisma, talent…he is a very, very good man-manager and a very successful one in terms of the trophies he has won for Chelsea.
From my point of view, I hope there is no clause in his contract which says he cannot work in this country because I will be sad to see him leave the Premier League.
