There should be more British managers in Premier League, believes Chelsea boss Mourinho

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho believes that there are too many foreign managers currently plying their trade in the Premier League, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

Mourinho’s side take on Derby County in the FA Cup third round on Sunday, and he has urged English coaches to follow in the footsteps of Rams Head Coach Steve McClaren and manage abroad to expand their careers.


Former England boss McClaren has made an instant impact at Derby since being appointed back in October, leading them to fourth place in the Championship with a run of eight wins in nine games which was only ended on New Year’s Day. During his time abroad, McClaren won the Dutch title with FC Twente, and also had a spell in charge of German club Wolfsburg.


“If you ask me, the first thing that comes to my memory about Steve is not being the England manager but being champion in Holland,” said Mourinho. “That’s the first thing that comes to my mind. So I think he did well. He disappeared from this country, he went for another one, he was champion.


“To go abroad is a fantastic experience and sometimes it looks like English players and managers don’t like to go abroad. What is happening now is that they don’t go abroad but others are coming to their country.”


At present, nine Premier League managers are non-British, and Mourinho added: ‘At this moment in the Premier League - and I know I’m speaking against myself – but I disagree with so many foreign coaches in this country.


“It’s because I don’t see a reason for that because I don’t feel the English managers are in any point behind the foreign ones. But I think if there are no jobs in the country as a manager or a player then you have to go.


“I have to say the managers that are coming here are good. So I’m not saying the people here are not top people, or that they doesn’t deserve to be here. I just feel sorry that in a football country like England managers are not getting enough jobs in this country. The main culture has to be always British.”
