Mourinho: I'll only leave if Real sack me

Jose Mourinho has firmly pledged his long-term future to Real Madrid, despite openly pondering a return to England only last month.

• Mourinho again hints at return
• Jose's nine-year run
• La Liga weekend preview

Mourinho's position at Real Madrid had been the subject of some speculation after he had a public disagreement with general manager Jorge Valdano over his use of Karim Benzema and the club's reluctance to sign a new striker.

The Real coach then spoke publicly of his interest in returning to England, where he won back-to-back Premier League titles with Chelsea in 2005 and 2006.

However, Real acquiesced to Mourinho's demands when signing Emmanuel Adebayor on loan from Manchester City and he appears to be happy at the Bernabeu once again.

"If they don't sack me then I will stay," Mourinho told Radio Cope. "When I signed for four years I did it with the intention to respect my contract.

"When you leave a team like Inter for Real Madrid you don't do it for one year. I want to stay and if we are all united in belief for this project then it's obvious I will stay."
