Mourinho downplays comment on quick England return

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has downplayed his recent comments to the BBC that he wanted to return to England "in a couple of years," saying he has no plans to abandon Spain anytime soon.
The former Chelsea manager told the Real Madrid website Friday that the phrase "'in a couple of years' should not be translated literally, it is an expression used in English to mean within a few years, not exactly two."
The 48-year-old Mourinho has a contract with Madrid until 2014.
Mourinho said "people who know me know perfectly well that I wouldn't leave for anything in the world and miss out on this Madrid, which still has the best to come."
