Jose Mourinho says he is looking to make return to club management in June; rules out taking charge of a national team

Mourinho said: “I know exactly what I don’t want. That’s the reason why I had to say (no) already to three or four different offers. And I know what I want, in terms of not a specific club but the nature of the job, the dimension of the job.”

Mourinho has been out of a job since he was sacked by United in December following a dismal run of results that left the club sixth in the Premier League standings, 19 points behind league leaders Liverpool.

“What I have in mind is that I would like to be back in the summer, in June, for a new club, for a new pre-season,” Mourinho told BeIN Sports.

“I know exactly what I don’t want. That’s the reason why I had to say (no) already to three or four different offers. And I know what I want, in terms of not a specific club but the nature of the job, the dimension of the job.”

Mourinho had said in January that he was not sure if he would manage another club in England after stints with Chelsea and United.

The 56-year-old, however, ruled out taking the reins of a national team as he prefers the day-to-day work that comes with being a club manager.

“I don’t think so,” Mourinho said, when asked if he would take charge of a national team. “I think a national team job is a very specific job.

“I like daily football, I like daily work, I like many competitions, I like matches and I want to stay in football club level. But who knows?”
