Jose Mourinho has stated that he wants to return to management this summer. The 56-year old Portuguese has been out of a job since he got fired last December by Manchester United.
He however claims he has turned down “three or four” job offers and is currently “preparing” for the next one.
“I would like to be back in the summer in June for a new club and a new pre-season,” he told BeIn Sports.
“I know exactly what I don’t want. I know what I want, in terms of not the specific club but the nature of the job, the dimension of the job.”
When asked if he misses management, he said, “nothing at all” but is “not on holiday or bored with nothing to do”.
“I am working, preparing myself for the next one,” he added.
Mourinho however ruled out taking a job with a national team.
When asked whether he would be managing at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, he said:
“I don’t think so. I like daily football, daily work, many competitions. I like matches and I want to stay in football club level.”
