Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has informed his staff that he will not leave in the summer, club doctor Luis Serratosa has claimed.
The 49-year-old trainer has been coy when asked about his long-term future at the Santiago Bernabeu after revealing in December that he plans to return to the Premier League 'in a couple of years'.
Earlier in the week, Mourinho stated that he did not see any reason to leave Madrid, and Serratosa has now claimed that the coach has told those around him at the club about his decision.
"When Jose came, we needed stability and he gave it to us," he told FourFourTwo. "Thankfully he has said to some of us that he is going to stay next season.
"He will be the first coach for a long time to stay for three seasons and I think that is great for the club.
"We have had so many different coaches, with every coach bringing his own team of coaching staff. In my time at Madrid, we have had 12 or 13 different fitness coaches that I have had to work with!"
Since arriving at the Santiago Bernabeu, Mourinho has led Los Blancos to one Copa del Rey title.
