London: English football champions Chelsea head coach Jose Mourinho on Monday hinted that he could take the post at the league rivals Arsenal after leaving the current club.
“Let me put it like this: one day I will leave Chelsea and when I do I will continue living in London. There are a number of other opportunities for a manager in London — Fulham, QPR, West Ham, Spurs, the England national team… and Arsenal,” Mourinho was quoted as saying by mirror.co.uk.
The 52-year-old has had a bitter relationship with Arsenal head coach Arsene Wenger with the duo clashing very often in the English Premier League (EPL) over the last few years.
They also took a dig at each other after Arsenal’s community shield win last month. Last year in October Wenger had pushed Mourinho near the touchline during an EPL contest at the Stamford Bridge.
After ruling out the possibility of managing a club which is not in the European Champions League, Mourinho said: “We are left with two options, yes? Arsenal and the England national team.”
