Mourinho wants to manage in Spain

Internazionale coach Jose Mourinho has admitted that he would like to try his hand in Spanish football at some point in the future.

Mourinho guided Inter to the Serie A title in his first season in Italy and says that he intends to remain with the Nerazzurri for the immediate future.



He told an Italian TV station: “I can say that coaching in Spain is a goal of mine, but by saying it is a goal people might start thinking I want to leave to go to Spain, which is not true.



“I know about the Real Madrid reports but that is not important. What is important is that I do not have a problem with saying that making the Grand Slam (winning the Premier League, Serie A and Primera Division) is a career goal, not a short-term one.



“I am not thinking about leaving to move to Spain to do that as soon as possible.”



Former Juventus coach Claudio Ranieri has threatened to take legal action after being dramatically fired by the Italian giants



Ranieri was axed on Monday to be replaced by youth academy director Ciro Ferrara and the veteran coach was less than happy with his treatment.



He told La Repubblica: "(Juve general manager) Jean-Claude Blanc has taken his word back.



"Real men don't behave like this and, most of all, this is not Juve's style.



Ranieri is unhappy in particular that Juve have opted to keep him on their payroll rather than pay him a 1.5million euro severance package.



He added: "When we signed the contract, Blanc promised that if Juve were to become dissatisfied with my work, they would activate that clause.



"They didn't do it and Blanc took his word back. I didn't expect it and I thought certain things would not happen at Juve."



Meanwhile, Juve have officially confirmed the capture of former defender Fabio Cannavaro on a free transfer from Real Madrid.



The 35-year-old Italy international will join the Turin giants in July when his contract with the Spanish side expires. The defender has agreed a one-year contract at the Stadio Olimpico with the option for a further 12 months.



Sporting director Alessio Secco said: "Fabio is a world champion. The club had to sell him in 2006 because of economic reasons.



"We have taken advantage this year to bring him back to Turin and we are sure he will make the Juventus squad more competitive."
