Jose Mourinho

Former Barcelona star Rivaldo expects Jose Mourinho to be linked to a return to Real Madrid, should Santiago Solari face another El Clasico defeat on Saturday.

The Brazilian believes that the pressure is mounting on Solari and the third El Clasico without victory in a month could determine his future at the club.

Should the Argentinian be ousted, Rivaldo expects ex-Real manager Jose Mourinho to return to theSpanish  capital.

The Portuguese had led Madrid to La Liga title in 2012 and Rivaldo feels that he could do a great job at the home of the European champions, despite his recent underwhelming spell at Manchester United.

“There is definitely a lot at stake for Solari in the Clasico,” he told Marca.

“It is normal that things are getting complicated for him and if he loses again at the Bernabeu then it would be goodbye to two competitions at the hands of Barcelona.

“That would be losing to your eternal rival twice in three days and could be very harmful for him.

“In that scenario, the name of Mourinho will be sounded out again. Jose is a great coach who had his moment at Madrid.

“A return to the Bernabeu is always a possibility, especially when things aren’t going well, which is the case.”
