José Mourinho has hinted that he could manage another Premier League club in the future, but insists he is content to stay at Chelsea until the club's owner Roman Abramovich no longer deems him worthy of the role.
The Portuguese, who has won domestic titles in four different countries as well as two Champions League triumphs in his illustrious managerial career to date, led his side to Premier League success twice during his first stint at Stamford Bridge and repeated the feat in typically efficient fashion this term after enduring the ignominy of a trophy-less 2013/14 campaign.
While his reputation in English football outside of West London remains somewhat mixed due to his tendency to create controversy in a bid to keep the pressure firmly off his own players, there is no doubting his legendary status among Chelsea supporters and they will be eager for him to remain in his current role for as long as possible.
"I see myself coaching another club, yes, but I love Chelsea and I am in Mr Abramovich's hands and until then I am here," Mourinho told BBC Football Focus.
"The day Mr Abramovich thinks I am not good enough for Chelsea, I want to work, and if possible in England too.
"Until Mr Abramovich says, I don't see myself going. Any club comes to me now and offers me a fantastic project, offers me twice my wages in the contract at Chelsea, no chance."
Mourinho's competitive spirit has led to many disagreements with opposition clubs and managers over the years, although he was heavily linked with Manchester United in 2013 when it became apparent that Sir Alex Ferguson was set to call time on his hugely successful 27-year stint in charge.
The Red Devils eventually opted for David Moyes and although Mourinho has since stressed that he would have rejected the opportunity to take the reins at Old Trafford in order to return to Chelsea, the possibility of the 52-year-old doing so at some stage in the future cannot be dismissed outright given that current incumbent Louis van Gaal has already confirmed that the United job will be his last in football management.
Chelsea end their season on 24 May with a home clash against a Sunderland side who no longer face any prospect of relegation after a goalless draw away to Arsenal in midweek.
Mourinho's side will be presented with their trophy after full-time and have a trophy parade scheduled to take place at 12pm the following day.
