Mourinho: ‘I See Myself More At A National Team Than A Club’

Former Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has suggested that his future might be away from club football as he contemplates his next move.

The Portuguese, who has been out of a job since he was sacked by United last December, revealed that a job with a national team rather than a club could appeal to him.

The 56-year-old has recently appeared as a pundit for broadcaster beIN SPORTS while sorting out his next job.

Now it appears he would settle for the less tasking job of national team coach because he has been unsatisfied with the offers he has got from clubs

Speaking in an interview with ‘Eleven Sports’, he said:

“I want to compete in a new competition. I think about the World Cup and the European Championships.

“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.

“Is Portugal the right team for me? Not necessarily.”

The two-time Champions League winner with FC Porto and Inter Milan, and League winner in Portugal, England, Italy, and Spain, however, didn't close the door on another club adventure, telling ‘Eleven Sports’ earlier in June:

“Winning a fifth championship in a different country or the Champions League with a third club are things I'd like to do.

“I wouldn't do it just for that. I only go where a project convinces me.

"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.”
