Jose Mourinho outlines managerial plans after receiving Man United advice



| Last Updated:


Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has revealed his plans to re-enter management in the summer after being sacked from AS Roma.

Mourinho, 61, departed his position at AS Roma in January after a difficult 2023/24 campaign.

The manager had won the Europa Conference League and reached the final of the Europa League during his time with the Italian club.

After he was sacked, reports emerged that Mourinho wanted a second chance at United under Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

Ahead of the summer, the Portuguese manager has explained his upcoming career plans but stated that there have been no offers yet.

He said, via Metro: “Zero [offers], zero. I don’t have a club, I’m free. But I want to work, in the summer I want to work.”

Asked whether he is ruling out a move to his home country Portugal, he added: “Why? Never say no, especially in football. My life is football, I can train anywhere, I have no problems.”

It seems unlikely that United would become an option for Mourinho even if Erik ten Hag is sacked, but the manager’s former defender Glen Johnson believes that could be good for the 61-year-old.

Speaking to Betfred about the rumours earlier this year, former Chelsea defender Johnson said: “He’s obviously a fantastic manager and regardless of whether there’s any substance to these rumours or not, there’s definitely some unfinished business between himself and Manchester United because he doesn’t usually go to these sorts of clubs and fail.

“If he went back, it would be no different to the club that he left in the first place because the squad still isn’t good enough and they’re not performing well on a consistent basis. However, Manchester United is still a giant of a football club and on paper, their team looks pretty bloody good, but something isn’t right there.”
