Mourinho: Dortmund clash will not decide my fate

29 April 2013 14:55

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has stressed that his future does not hinge on their UEFA Champions League semi-final with Borussia Dortmund.

The Spanish giants go into the second leg at the Bernabeu

4-1 down after a calamitous defeat at the Westfalenstadion.

Madrid sit 11 points behind Barcelona in La Liga with

five games to play, meaning elimination on Tuesday would leave the Copa del Rey

as their only realistic chance of silverware this season.

That would almost certainly be seen as a failure on

Mourinho's part, but the Portuguese insists that the clash with Dortmund will

not determine whether he stays in the Spanish capital at the end of the season.

"My future doesn't depend on what happens Tuesday,"

Mourinho said.

"Will it be my last game? I am only thinking about

the match against Dortmund. It's the most important game of the past 10 years

for Madrid. My future is not on my mind."

German publication Bild

earlier reported that Mourinho had told Dortmund head coach Jurgen Klopp

that he was set to return to Chelsea next season – a claim that has since been

refuted by Klopp – but Mourinho was quick to deny those suggestions.

He added: "I never told Klopp that I was going to

Chelsea."
