Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was speaking with the French press about the Paris Saint-Germain job and didn’t rule out a future position in the French capital.
Les Parisiens have risen dramatically in recent years to become one of Europe’s most dominant sides and their interest in the former Inter Milan coach has been evident.
Initial talks began over a possible link-up in the early stages following the takeover of Qatar Sports Investment in 2011, but the self-proclaimed Special One admitted to rejecting the offer twice.
“I think I can say that I was the first option to come to Paris with Leonardo, but I denied the offer twice.” He said, quoted by French publication Footmercato.
Since 2011, the self-proclaimed Special One has gone on to win multiple trophies with La Liga giants Real Madrid before returning to the Blues in the summer of 2013.
Stamford Bridge has always been the place which Mournho has held closest to his heart, and the two-time Champions League-winning coach plans to stay there for a long time.
When asked if he would ever consider a move to Paris, Mourinho said: “A possible signature with PSG? If Chelsea sack me, yes. Otherwise, I am always there [at Stamford Bridge]. Paris is not an option now and I’m not going to be fired because the results are good."
Under the 51-year-old’s stewardship, Chelsea have begun the season in exceptional form, winning six out of their seven Premier League games scoring 21 goals in the process.
