Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says that his wife was right to talk him out of taking the England job in 2007.


The Portuguese had been keen on succeeding Steve McClaren after the Three Lions failed to qualify for Euro 2008 and was even considering who he might pick in his first squad before having a dramatic change of heart.


Speaking to Clare Balding for a BT Sport Christmas Day Special, 'Clare Balding Meets', Mourinho revealed that his wife, Matilde Faria, made him realize that he would have got bored in between international games.

"She was right. Too early for me," he recalled. "I love the day-by-day [of club management], I love to play, I love the pressure of the day-by-day, the training, the traveling, the matches, the competitiveness.

"I remember clearly there was a moment where the next match for England would be in Paris, France versus England, a friendly match - and I was already thinking about who to select, who to play, how to do it.

"She came to me and said: 'When is the next match? Ah, the next match is in two months. What are you doing for two months, what are you doing, what are you thinking?' She was saying: 'Forget it, it's not for you. Maybe in 20 years.'"

Instead of taking the England post, Mourinho joined Inter, where he won the treble, before a spell with Real Madrid and his subsequent return to Stamford Bridge.
