The Portuguese tactician stated that he is focused on his with Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu and is disinterested with what happens in Catalonia.
Real Madrid take on the challenge of Bielsa’s Athletic Bilbao at the San Mames with the possibility of securing La Liga crown. While news from the Santiago Bernabeu is rosy, the same cannot be said about events going on in Catalonia.
End of the 2011/12 season will see a change of ownership of first team affairs as Pep Guardiola vacates the managerial position in favour of Tito Vilanova. The 41-year-old won 13 out of the 16 competitions he led La Blaugrana in but does not want
to carry the weight of responsibility any longer.
When quizzed about the situation, Jose Mourinho coyly replied that he is indifferent to happenings elsewhere. He stated that Barcelona are an individual entity from Real Madrid and can make their decisions as they like.
Mourinho added that he is only concerned with the affairs of the Capital club and in that regard he wants to continue at the bench of Los Blancos. He added that no one waits for someone in the world of football that goes on.
Regarding Tito Vilanova’s appointment as Barcelona’s next manager, the Special One commented that the Camp Nou hierarchy would have arrived at the decision after giving the thought enough consideration, and as a Real Madrid employee cannot have a say.
He added that Los Blancos welcome any such decision and will relish the rivalry with devotion.
"Real Madrid is Real Madrid. They [Barcelona] make their decisions. My decision to continue here has nothing to do with who is coach of the other team. Real moves on and so do Barcelona. I do not believe that Barca don't have people with the capacity to
decide [who should be in charge]," he added.
"If they have decided Vilanova should be the next coach, I'm sure it's been done with conviction. From our point of view, we respect what they do as always as we know that in the coming seasons, they will be our main rivals in although the rest are
getting better."
Real Madrid’s La Liga fixture against Athletic Bilbao kicks off at 22 00 CET.
