Mourinho favours Premier League

Jose Mourinho insists he does not worry about his critics at Real Madrid but revealed he still prefers working in England.

Mourinho has faced early pressure in Madrid as, substantial victories over Espanyol and Deportivo aside, his team have regularly struggled in front of goal.

As a coach with a reputation for defensive football, Mourinho was always likely to face some problems in winning over the club's fans, but he says he has no issues with the constant talk.

"How am I going to worry when so many people have something to say about me? There isn't one interview that doesn't mention me in the Spanish press," he told GOL T. "Imagine if I was concerned about it."

He added: "I think that Real Madrid cannot have a coach with no track record. I have won two Champions Leagues and six league titles in different countries. I have won 17 titles in total. There were many doubters when I got here. Real Madrid cannot have a coach without status or prestige and he must be given room to work with."

Mourinho, who endured a difficult time with the press and fellow coaches in Serie A, has always spoken of his love for English football and revealed the Premier League is his ideal destination.

"The joy of my job and career is that it has allowed me to coach in Portugal, then England, then Italy and now Spain. It makes me a much richer coach than one who has always managed in the same place and in the same culture," he said.

"I prefer England. I think that in Portugal, Italy and Spain there are some fans who prefer the day before and day after a match rather than the match itself."

Many believe Mourinho is the most likely successor to Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United, and he confirmed he has a strong bond with the 68-year-old. "Among all the coaches in football, I can say he [Ferguson] is my best friend," Mourinho said.
