Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho wants another 12 years in club management before taking charge of Portugal and leading them to a World Cup.
“My desire and my feeling is to work these four years and, after that, we analyse the situation,” said the 50-year-old Mourinho, who is in his second stint as Blues manager.
Asked how much longer he would spend in club management, he replied: “I’d say 12 years, then two to go to a World Cup with a national team. I would prefer the Portuguese national team.”
If the Portugal job was not available in 2026, the former Porto and Real Madrid boss said managing England would be his second choice.
