Mourinho unsure of United job but hopes to be back

Mourinho unsure of United job but hopes to be back


<p>Jose Mourinho said he is in the dark about becoming the next Manchester United manager after being quizzed in Singapore.</p> <p>Mourinho parted company with Chelsea for a second time in December following a poor defence of their Premier League title.</p> <p>Reports earlier this month indicated that Mourinho and his representatives are increasingly confident he will be United manager next season.</p> <p>“The reality is I like football so much that I miss football so when I get the chance to be back I will come back but I have to wait to see what happens,” Mourinho said.</p> <p>“I read so many different things. One day says yes one day says no. One other day says I am going to China, another to Italy, every day new things are coming but the reality is that I have no job and at this moment I am happy not to have a job,”</p> <p>Jose Mourinho also hinted he will not take a new job until the start of next season and remained coy over his prospects of taking over at Manchester United.</p> <p>“I miss football. If I have to return tomorrow I return tomorrow but I always feel that it is better to wait, not to rush, it’s better to be calm to wait for the right moment, for the right move, I think starting the next season with a new club, a new project is probably the best thing for me,” he added.</p>
