Real Madrid fired Manuel Pellegrini and they will hire Mourinho when his exit from Inter Milan is negotiated. If Mourinho can do at Real Madrid what he did at Inter Milan then the Internet betting odds could definitely be affected.
Online betting odds favored Inter Milan quite a bit this past season as Mourinho did a great job. He led them to the Series A title, the Italian Cup and the Champions League title. Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is hoping that he can have similar success for his team.
Perez said that Pellegrini did an "impeccable," job but obviously that didn’t matter since it was thought for a long while that Mourinho would be taking over. Mourinho enjoyed his time with Inter Milan but he said he does not really like Italian soccer. He has always wanted to coach at Madrid. He sure could make a difference in Real Madrid’s Internet betting odds. The team has been knocked out of the Champions League in the round of 16 in each of the past six years.
Mourinho is going to be well received at Madrid, especially since he led Inter Milan to a win over Madrid's rival, Barcelona. Mourinho has an excellent coaching resume. He won the league, Portuguese Cup and UEFA Cup in 2003 with Porto. He led Porto to a league and Champions League title in 2004 and then he took over at Chelsea. He led Chelsea to a league title in 2005 and in 2006. He left the team in the 2007-08 seasons after conflicts with the owner but he was not without a job for long.
The addition of Mourinho to Real Madrid really can’t be understated when you are considering soccer odds. A head coach can make a huge difference as Mourinho proved this year with Inter Milan. The pressure will be on for Mourinho to produce at Real Madrid but his history is really good at getting teams to win. He could easily make Madrid into title contenders next season. In fact, that is exactly what will be expected of him considering how much money he will be making at Madrid.
