Chelsea silent on Mourinho future
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho
Mourinho has made it clear he wants to stay on
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says the club's directors have not yet told him if he will be in charge next season.

Mourinho has received the backing of chief executive Peter Kenyon but says the directors have not yet given him any guarantees.

"I told the board in person I want to stay and I was satisfied with their reaction," he said.

But when asked why he could not be certain of staying at Chelsea, he said: "Because nobody told me."

Russian owner Roman Abramovich will have the final say on Mourinho's future, and he has yet to make any comment or give any signal, despite the club being in contention for an unprecedented quadruple.

Mourinho has made it clear that as far as he is concerned, he wants to stay, and expects his children to continue at their school next year.

"I love the club, I love English football. I can say for example that we have told the school that we want to keep their place next season," he said.

"Success is about groups. When we fail I accept the manager is the face of the failure, when we win I don't accept the manager is the face of the success.

"The players have been absolutely fantastic. The season has been difficult but great. This is a very, very special group."
