José Mourinho Won't Wait, Says He Will Leave Real Madrid On June 1
Published May 21, 2013
MOVING TO CHELSEA: In Madrid, J.L. Calderón reported Mourinho "will be the Chelsea manager next season." Mourinho "will bring his adventure at Real Madrid to a close on June 30 and return to England to begin his second stint in charge of the Blues." Mourinho "has already told his innermost circle that the agreement with Chelsea is a done deal" (MARCA, 5/19).
FANS WANT TORIL: Also in Madrid, Carlos Forjanes reported Real Madrid fans do not want to see any more of Mourinho on the bench, "and they prefer that Toril coach the final two games of the La Liga season." This was expressed by 82% of the participants who answered AS's question, "Should Toril sit on the Real Madrid bench for what remains of the season?" The poll question drew 29,295 votes, with just 18% of responses favoring Mourinho finishing the season (AS, 5/20).
