MADRID (AP) — Jose Mourinho will leave Real Madrid after three years as coach, paving the path for his return to England and a second stint as Chelsea’s manager.

Real Madrid President Florentino Perez announced at a news conference following a board meeting that a mutual agreement was reached for Mourinho’s departure.

The 50-year-old Portuguese coach has two matches remaining in a season that will end June 1 without Madrid winning a major trophy.

Mourinho will leave having won only two major titles, the 2011 Copa del Rey and the 2012 league championship, and he failed to deliver the club’s much-desired 10th European Cup.
