Sergio Ramos: ‘Everyone would want Jose Mourinho’

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos claimed that “everyone would want” Jose Mourinho amid suggestions that the Portuguese could return to the Bernabeu as head coach.
Mourinho, who was sacked by Manchester United on Tuesday, managed Real Madrid between 2010 and 2013.

The Portuguese won one La Liga title and one Copa del Rey during his time at the Bernabeu, and it has been suggested that he could return to the Spanish capital.

Santiago Solari is currently in charge of Los Blancos, having replaced Julen Lopetegui earlier this season.

Ramos has said that Solari ‘deserves respect’ while he is in the position, but the centre-back was also keen to complement Mourinho.

“We have had five years since Mourinho [left] and we are still talking about Mourinho. Why?” Ramos asked reporters ahead of Real Madrid’s Club World Cup final against Al Ain.

“He is a coach of the highest level so everyone would want him. Real Madrid has won everything so we have to have respect for the coach that we have now.

“We don’t have Mourinho, we have Solari. We’re going to see if we can win this title and maybe after that we will talk about Mourinho. I don’t want to be part of this [rumours] game.”

Mourinho is also reportedly wanted by Boca Juniors to become their new head coach.
