Former Real Madrid President Claims Jose Mourinho Will Be Next Real Boss
Jose Mourinho might be out of work right now after his sacking from Manchester United but former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon thinks that he'll soon be back at the Bernabeu.
It can't be easy for Jose Mourinho right now. The former Manchester United manager probably scoffed when he learnt the club were replacing him, one of the most successful managers of the modern era, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, a relative novice at the top level.
In the last couple of months though Solskjaer has transformed a group of players that Mourinho had been putting together over the last few years and turned around their playing style and recent form.
The new man even stuck the boot in by selling Mourinho favourite Marouane Fellaini in the January window.
However no one should feel too bad for the former two time Chelsea manager, after all he once again got a big pay day and despite another failure he'll no doubt get another big job soon.
With that in mind former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon thinks that Mourinho will be back in the hot seat at the Bernabeu next season, taking to Twitter to say, "I have the feeling, and something else, that next season Mourinho will sit on the bench of."
Tengo la sensación, y algo más, de que la próxima temporada Mourinho se sentará en el banquillo del @realmadrid

Real won their third Champions League in a row last season but Zinedine Zidane then left the club, he was replaced, in farcical circumstances, by then Spain manager Julen Lopetegui on the eve of the World Cup.
Lopetegui was sacked in October after a 5-1 loss to Barcelona and replaced by Santiago Solari. Things have improved under the former midfielder but not to a level that Los Blancos would expect.
Solari has a contract till 2021 but knowing what Florentino Perez is like only a fourth Champions League title in a row is likely to save him, and even then.
Of course, as with pretty much every Mourinho job, the 56 year old had his problems in the Spanish capital and fell out with several players during his spell there.
Could Mourinho return to the Bernabeu?
