Jose Mourinho: Paris St-Germain don't need me
Wednesday 23 January 2013
The Real Madrid head coach, Jose Mourinho, has conceded defeat in the race for the Spanish title while distancing himself from becoming manager of Paris St-Germain.
The Portuguese faces an uncertain future as Real struggle to close a 15-point gap on the league leaders Barcelona. Reports in Spain suggest Mourinho is also at odds with several club directors and players.
Mourinho said: "The league title is impossible now, there is too big a gap. We have to focus on other goals like the Copa del Rey and the Champions League."
Asked if he could join Paris, he added: "No, I don't think I will coach PSG. The success of PSG with [coach Carlo] Ancelotti and [director] Leonardo means they have no need for another coach."
