Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has made it clear that he has no intention to leave the La Liga champions until his contract expires in 2016.
The Portuguese trainer recently revealed that he has set his sights on a return to the Premier League after his spell at Madrid, and has since been linked with a number of clubs.
However, Mourinho has stressed that he is happy to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu side for now.
“I don’t think about other clubs, especially as I have a four-year contract with Real,” Mourinho said in an interview with CNN.
“I signed it and when I signed it, I signed it because I wanted to be at Real Madrid at this period of my career. I am not thinking about another club.”
The former Chelsea boss also claimed that people regularly insult him and his children when he attempts to socialise.
Mourinho has developed a reputation as a controversial figure due to his outspoken nature, and his stay in the Spanish capital has witnessed several fierce battles with main rivals Barcelona.
And he has now revealed that he is routinely targeted by the public, who have also taunted his children when he is with them.
“I hate my social life. I hate not to be a normal father who goes with his son to his football match and be there with the 20 other fathers watching the game,” he said.
“The people have to come for photos; the people have to come for autographs; the people have come to insult me; the people have to go behind the goal of my kid to insult a 12-year-old kid.
“People think they know me, but they don’t. People know the manager, especially the manager during 90 minutes. And during 90 minutes, I’m not there to have fun.
“I’m there to do my job, I’m there to win. I’m there with my team to try to win. I’m there and I live the game. I live the match as if it was the last of my career.
“People look at me and see what they see. It’s the other place where people know me.”
Having ended Barcelona’s stranglehold on the La Liga title, Mourinho is currently bidding to bring home the club’s 10th Champions League title, but does not feel his spell at Madrid will be deemed a failure should he not manage to do so.
“Will I see my stay here as a failure? No. In relation to the Champions League there is an edge where the difference between succeeding and not succeeding is very narrow,” he said.
“The world will consider it a failure because I won it so many times and brought so much success to my teams that everyone is probably expecting that.”
