FORMER Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has said that he sees himself more at a national team rather than a club side in his next move.
Mourinho is currently unemployed after being let go by United in December and has recently been working as a pundit for beIN Sports.
However, he has made no secret about his desire to return to management but in an interview on Eleven Sports he hinted that a new role might be with a national team, adding it would not necessarily have to be his native Portugal.
“I want to compete in new competitions. For a long time I have had the desire to try out such an adventure. Right now, I see myself more at a national team than with a new club,” he said.
“Is Portugal the right team for me? Not necessarily.”
Mourinho did also add that he would not be against managing a club again but he did continue his recent postulating that he would want to try and manage in a different league or at the least a different club.
“Winning a fifth championship in a different country or the Champions League with a third club are things I’d like to do.
“I want to be happy, not necessarily win, I want to be happy and I don’t want to accept a proposal without being convinced of it, that’s what I’ve always thought.
“That’s why if [a club] told me ‘today there are no conditions to win, but we want you to create the conditions to win’, then I would evaluate it.” – Eurosport
