Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has admitted that he hopes he does not return to Chelsea for a third stint in the hotseat in the future.

The Portuguese trainer has led the Blues to the Premier League title during two separate tenures at Stamford Bridge, but has been axed by Roman Abramovich on both occasions.

Mourinho has since being named as United boss and will return to West London as a Red Devil for the first time this Sunday.

The former Real Madrid and Inter trainer has been speaking out about his affiliation with Chelsea and his rich history of success with the Blues.

Mourinho has admitted that he is part of the London outfit’s past but that he is focussed on building a dynasty at United for many years to come.

“I hope not, honestly,” he told Sky Sports when asked if he would ever return to Chelsea for a third time.

“Because I would like to stay [at United] for many many years. That would mean probably that I would not be searching for another club in the Premier League, so I hope not.”

Mourinho takes his United team to Stamford Bridge after a dogged performance to get a 0-0 draw against Liverpool at Anfield on Monday night.

Chelsea have been much improved in recent games since Antonio Conte has switched to a three-man central defence.
