Mourinho: Winning Champions League will not determine my fate

The Real Madrid coach says neither winning or losing the Champions League will have a bearing on any decision he makes regarding his future at the Liga champions

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has dismissed suggestions he hopes to win the Champions League at Wembley in May before walking off into the arms of a new club in the summer.

The Blancos’ coach left Porto and Inter respectively in the wake of lifting European club football’s most important prize.

However, the Portuguese has denied speculation he would be content to repeat the narrative with the Liga holders at the end of this season.

“I never base my decisions on whether I win or not,” Mourinho told The Sun.

“I work at the top level every day, thinking only about the club and never worrying about myself.”

The 50-year-old trainer has been linked with a move to Manchester City or a possible return to Chelsea and has never hidden his affection for the Premier League.

Madrid have put up a poor defence of their Liga title this term, with Mourinho’s future also made uncertain by reported disagreements with senior players such as club captain Iker Casillas.
