Mourinho unsure of United job but hopes to be back

Mourinho unsure of United job but hopes to be back


Jose Mourinho said he is in the dark about becoming the next Manchester United manager after being quizzed in Singapore.

Mourinho parted company with Chelsea for a second time in December following a poor defence of their Premier League title.

Reports earlier this month indicated that Mourinho and his representatives are increasingly confident he will be United manager next season.

“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.

“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,”

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.

“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.
