Jose Mourinho breaks his silence amid Man United speculation

Jose Mourinho says he is likely to wait until the summer before deciding what his next job will be

Jose Mourinho has spoken about his future in detail for the first time since his sacking by Chelsea as he continues to be linked with the managerial job at Manchester United.

The Portuguese coach has been touted as a possible target to take over from Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford at the end of the season following United’s poor form this term.

Mourinho is currently without a job after being dismissed by Chelsea in December following the disastrous start to their title defence.

There has been plenty of speculation in recent days suggesting that Mourinho is United’s first choice to succeed Van Gaal at Old Trafford.

And speaking on Wednesday during a trip to Singapore, Mourinho confirmed that joining a new club in the summer is probably best for him.

Mourinho is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail: “I always feel that it’s better to wait, not to rush, better to be calm, to wait for the right moment, the right move.

“I feel that starting the next season with a new club and project is probably the best thing for me.

“It’s quite a funny career. I am the English champion, and I still have no job.

“I read so many different things. One day it says I go to China, another day it says I go to Italy, and people say I’m back to Inter Milan. I’m here – probably, you are saying I will go to the Singapore national team.

“But the reality is I have no job, and at the moment I’m happy not to have a job.”
