15 Jul Jose Mourinho:’Proper project’ is crucial before return to direction after Manchester United sacking
The former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager is eager to return to work but is awaiting to get an intriguing struggle to present itself
Jose Mourinho is longing for a return to football direction seven weeks after being sacked by Manchester United, but has emphasized that he’s awaiting”the ideal job” to present itself.
The Portuguese, 56, spent two-and-a-half years in Old Trafford, winning them the Europa League, but struggled to change them back to serious title challengers.
He had been dismissed after a terrible run of form, while he also attracted criticism from fans for appearing to alienate several United players throughout his period at the helm.
Mourinho has been connected with many tasks since leaving United, together with Benfica, Lyon and many lately Newcastle believed to have been fascinated.
However, after rejecting speculation surrounding the Magpies because of a desire to struggle for honours, the former Real Madrid boss cautioned his plan to simply accept the ideal deal.
If requested by Sky Sports when he had been hungry to come back to direction, Mourinho said:”I’m, but I shall await the perfect club, to get the correct job.
“And, in the meantime, I’m doing things that I like to perform. I like to operate, but I enjoy other sports and this is a great chance to enjoy [things other than football].”
Obviously enjoying his downtime, Mourinho was envisioned at Silverstone watching qualifying for Sunday’s British Grand Prix, where Valtteri Bottas pipped Lewis Hamilton into pole position.
The day before, he was seen farther south in Wimbledon since Roger Federer booked his place in Sunday’s showpiece using a semi-final defeat of eternal rival Rafael Nadal.
Back on that the football pitch, the Portuguese has been connected with a first foray into global direction, a challenge he’s confessed to being enthusiastic on.

However, with lots of clubs under stress to deliver outcomes early in the new year, Mourinho may choose to bide his time and wait for you to turn to him at their time of need.
Whether his period as a Premier League director is up remains to be seen, however with bridges burnt at Chelsea and United it is really hard to imagine he is going to probably be making a return at club.
That is already his greatest spell from direction in more than a decade; following his shock exit in the conclusion of his first bout in Chelsea, it had been nearly nine weeks until he took over at Inter in the summer of 2008.
