MADRID - Jose Mourinho was roundly booed by Real Madrid fans at the Bernabeu before a 6-2 thrashing over Malaga in a Spanish La Liga match on Wednesday night.

Mourinho is widely expected to leave Madrid at the end of the season in favour of a return to Chelsea, and the home fans appear to have turned on their coach since the Blancos were eliminated at the semi-final stage of the Champions League to Borussia Dortmund last week.

The coach further divided fans' opinion with two fiery Press conferences in the last week, in which he criticised club captain and legend Iker Casillas and centre back Pepe.

But over in west London his name was being sung loud and proud by Chelsea fans, desperate for the Special One to return to Stamford Bridge.

Blues fans, disgruntled at the regime under Rafa Benitez, want the Portuguese back in place this summer after a seven year absence.

They sang Mourinho's name through the match with Tottenham on Wednesday night and roundly booed the Spaniard when he substituted Oscar for Benayoun.

Mourinho's name was whistled when it was read out by the stadium announcer before the match with Malaga, but his assistant Aitor Karanka sought to play down the significance of the fans' ill-feeling towards his boss.

He said: "We don't pay much attention to that.

"In any case, the fans express their feelings while the coaching staff try to get the best performance out of the players. However, we respect their views."
