(GSM) - Internazionale coach Jose Mourinho insists he intends to honor his stay in Italy and remain with the Nerazzurri until 2012.
Mourinho extended his contract last year, however some still believe he could leave after this season comes to an end.
Former Chelsea boss Mourinho has been constantly linked with a move back to England where he enjoyed great success. His relation with the Italian media has deteriorated after the media criticized him for his style of management and continuous off-the-pitch rants.
The Portuguese tactician has voiced his desire to return to England on many occasions, but he insists that he wants to see out his contract with Inter until 2012.
"There are no friends in football, so to be able to say that I am the friend of my ex-president Roman Abramovich makes me happy and one day this will happen with Moratti because the relationship with him is positive and sincere," Mourinho told Sky Sport Italia.
"When I am no longer a coach I will remember a president who has always been fair with me and I hope that he remembers me in the future as a positive trainer, but we are speaking about the future.
"Because at this moment I am and I'll be Inter coach.
"On the contrary of what was said when I signed until 2012, I did it with the intention of staying until 2012.
"Me and the club have done it with the conviction to go forward until 2012."
Mourinho joined Inter last season and won the Serie A with Inter in his first season in Italy. It is likely that Inter will win a second consecutive Italian league title. However, Mourinho has been under-fire after failing to raise Inter's standards on the European scene.
