Mourinho won three Premier League titles, an FA Cup and three League Cups across two spells at Stamford Bridge but was sacked for the second time in 2015.

He is currently a free agent after being dismissed by AS Roma in January but is expected to return to management in the near future.

One option for Mourinho could be Chelsea, with a section of the fans chanting for their former manager amid growing discontent around Mauricio Pochettino.

Asked about the chants for his return by Fabrizio Romano, Mourinho said: “The first feeling is I always say that the best thing football has is the fans.

“Because the fans don’t make money with football – they spend money with football! Sometimes they spend money that the family needs and they make sacrifices because of the passion for football and especially for the passion for their clubs.

“So normally they are fair. When the club’s fans don’t like the players, don’t like the coach, for some reason, it’s not because beautiful eyes, it’s not because handsome guy. They love it, or they don’t love it, for some reason.

“In my case, independent of results – of course I had the luck always to have something to celebrate, something for the fans to have a good memory of me – but I think something that they see is when you are committed to them.”
