Jose Mourinho: 'I hate my social life, people have come to insult me'
Jose Mourinho says the fame that comes with football management can be difficult to bear.
The Real Madrid manager, speaking to CNN, says his 12-year-old son has been abused and that it is impossible to lead a normal life.
"If I could be a manager, a football manager, and the moment I leave the club or the moment the match finished, if I could switch off a light and become a person that nobody knows, I would do it," he said.
"Because I hate my social life. I hate my social life. I hate not to be a normal father who goes with his son to the son's football match and being there with the other 20 fathers watching the match.
"I am in a football match of kids 10-12 years old and I have to be there, the people have to come for photos, the people have to come for autographs, the people have to come to insult me, the people have to go behind the goal of my kid and insult my kid of 12 years old.
"I would love to be with my family in the street as a normal person and I can't, so I am a completely different person in my private life."
Despite the price Mourinho pays for managing the world's biggest club, the 49-year-old is not interested in giving it up. Having spoken recently about wanting to last in management as long as Sir Alex Ferguson, who is now 70, Mourinho has revealed he would like the opportunity to take on his Manchester United counterpart again in the Premier League.
"For me, he's the boss. I call him the boss because he's the boss of the coaches and I hope that when I go back to English football he still manages Man United."
The former Chelsea manager has always been adamant he wants to return to England to manage, although it would not appear it will happen any time soon. Mourinho is also in no mood to contemplate taking over at mega-rich Manchester City.
"I don't think about that (taking over at City), especially because I have a four-year contract with Real. I signed it and when I signed it I signed it because I wanted to be in Real Madrid in this period of my career and I don't think in another club.
"I just say openly that for many reasons after this project, the next step will be England for many reasons, but when? I don't know, I don't have an idea and I am so happy to be in this moment as manager of the best club in the world."
