Mourinho regrets not leaving Chelsea sooner

Jose Mourinho has admitted that he regrets not leaving Chelsea sooner after revealing he had a chance to move on from Stamford Bridge before his relationship with the club broke down.

The new manager of Inter Milan claims he could have left the club on a high after the 1-0 FA Cup win over the Red Devils at Wembley in May 2007, as there was interest in his services.

Speaking in a video released by Ford's FeelFootball.com, Mourinho said: 'If there is a moment in my career where I regret a decision it was clearly the day after the FA Cup final - when my agent told me 'Club X' want you tomorrow and I told him no, I love it here and I don't want to go, I want to stay.

'That's the moment I regret. After that day, after that final, I should (have left) Chelsea and I would have the chance in Wembley to say goodbye to the fans and to say goodbye to English football. So that's a moment I regret because the next season lasted only a couple of months.'

The 45-year-old left Stamford Bridge in mid-September 2007 under a cloud, having drawn at home with minnows Rosenborg in the Champions League, but the Portuguese has declared his 'love' for the club.

'I only have friends in Chelsea and I have problems with nobody,' he said. 'But if I stayed there one, two, three, four more weeks probably in this moment I wouldn't say this.

'I love that club, I'm in the history of that club and I left the club in the right moment to feel like that and to say that honestly.

'So it was the right moment to do it. But clearly if I regret one decision in my career it's that decision of staying in Chelsea not one more season, staying in Chelsea a few more months.'
