Years have passed since Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho worked together at Real Madrid but calls have been made for the pair to return to Spain.
In an interview with Canal 11, LaLiga president Javier Tebas has revealed his desire to see the former Los Blancos duo return to the league in the future.
The 57-year-old has explained how Ronaldo and Mourinho’s global stature inevitably attracts a wider audience, and that having the pair return to Spain would help promote the domestic league.
“I would like to have Cristiano Ronaldo back and for Jose Mourinho to be coaching a Spanish team,” Tebas said.
“He (Mourinho) is a great coach and a great name to promote our league.
“I thought that his (Ronaldo) departure would affect us more, to be honest. However, I prefer the Spanish league with Ronaldo in it than without.”
Ronaldo scored 311 goals in 292 LaLiga appearances during his time with Real, the second most by any player in the league’s history, before joining Juventus at the beginning of last season.
Mourinho, on the other hand, left Madrid in 2013, after which he spent time with Premier League sides Chelsea and Manchester United.
