Jose Mourinho wants a THIRD spell as Chelsea boss, he's 'frustrated' at Roma
| Last updated
Jose Mourinho is reportedly targeting a third spell in charge of Chelsea, after becoming frustrated with his situation with AS Roma.
The Daily Mail claim Mourinho – who celebrated his 60th birthday this week – is eyeing another stint at Stamford Bridge next season; they say returning to Chelsea is 'his ideal scenario'.
Mourinho's children grew up in London and his wife is still based in the capital. He famously remained rooted down south when working as Manchester United manager, living out of the Lowry Hotel during his two-and-a-half year Old Trafford spell.
The Portuguese led Roma to the inaugral Europa Conference League title last year, but the club's lack of resources and spending power is leaving them short of fighting for the Serie A title.
The Giallorossi are currently fifth in the Italian league, just one point off Milan in second place but 13 behind this season's surprise runaway leaders Napoli.
There is no suggestion that Chelsea will immediately change managers, despite Graham Potter coming under fierce pressure since taking the job in west London.
New owner Todd Boehly has sanctioned a huge number of transfers since he arrived, and pulled the trigger on former manager Thomas Tuchel in September, bringing Potter in from Brighton to replace him.
Chelsea went on an astonishing run of just two wins in 10 games either side of the World Cup break.
But they have kept clean sheets in their past two outings. They face London rivals Fulham and West Ham in their next two Premier League games.
Mourinho remains a beloved figure in the eyes of Chelsea fans, having won three Premier League titles for the club, and many would welcome him back with open arms.
