    The video will start in 8 Cancel Jose Mourinho has hailed "unique" Real Madrid, as he positions himself as the man to replace under-fire Santiago Solari
    Back-to-back defeats to Barcelona have left the Spanish side 12 points off the pace in La Liga and out of the Copa del Rey
    That means Solari must now lead the club to a fourth successive Champions League title - or face being dumped in the summer by president Florentino Perez
    Over the weekend, while working as a pundit for beIN Sports, Mourinho insisted he would have no problem returning to the Bernabeu for a second spell, having previously spent three years with Los Blancos
    That spell finished amid infighting and political struggles between he, the players and the board, but Mourinho insisted on Tuesday that were he to return, he would do so a better manager
    The ex-Chelsea and Manchester United boss told Deportes Cuatro: "I have a fantastic memory of working in Real Madrid
    It is a unique experience and different to the rest of the clubs I have been at. "We did fantastic things, we won the league in a unique way
    "We also had bad moments, I made mistakes, but after, the experience made me a better manager and person
    " Solari was only appointed as permanent Real Madrid boss in November, handed a deal until 2021 after being announced as Julen Lopetegui's replacement
    But after an initially bright start, pressure is mounting, amid suggestions that he is at odds with a number of key players and inconsistent results
    Asked specifically about a return, Mourinho said: "What do you want to me say, rumours are rumours
    "I wouldn't have a problem going back to Madrid, Porto, Chelsea, Inter, any team that I have managed
    "It's a nice feeling when someone wants you when you have already been there, but Chelsea is the only team that asked me to go back after a previous spell at the club, nobody else
