Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has hinted he will leave Real Madrid at the end of the current football season.

Asked by Britain's ITV after the Champions League semifinal which his side won 2-0 at home to Borussia Dortmund, which was not enough to overcome their first leg 1-4 defeat, whether he hoped to do better at Real Madrid next season, he replied: "Maybe not ... I don't know, but I know I want to be where I love to be, where people love me to be ..."

Incredibly the TV station cut him off before he could say any more, but at his press conference after the game, Mourinho added: "The most important thing is not that I am here or not, it is what Real Madrid do. Real Madrid have won European Cups in different periods - first of all the first six European Cups and then the seventh, eighth and ninth. Now we have played three semi- finals and we have recovered our credibility, but Real Madrid doesn't live by 'almosts' and neither do I. These have been three economically fantastic years for the club. "

"They have to win it (The Champions League) in the future, when they will win it, I don't know and it would be optimum if they win it with me, but if not, I will celebrate the same."

Mourinho could probably go back to Chelsea after the season, despite having a contract with Real Madrid until 2016.
