I’ll wait to be back in football - Mourinho

Jose Mourinho is not in a hurry to get back and is going to “wait to be back in football” after being dismissed from Tottenham last month.

Jose Mourinho



in 2019 as Mauricio Pochettino’s successor, helping his side finish sixth in the

Premier League

in his debut season.

Having led another disappointing season as the Spurs sit outside the European qualification zone, the 58-year-old lost his position. He departed the club six days prior to Tottenham’s Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.


I have no plans,"

Mourinho told the 

Times Magazine


"I am going on with my normal life. I feel fresh. I feel calm. I am on holiday.

"I have more time to be doing my homework and analysis. I'll wait to be back in football.

"Not just for the right club, but for the right culture. Maybe next season is premature, we will see."

For the first time in his career, Mourinho lost 10 league games in one season.

When the three-time league winner was fired,

Jamie Carragher

insisted that his “ship has sailed” on managing Premier League clubs.


I don't see Mourinho back in the Premier League, I think that ship's sailed now,"

he said.

"I struggle to think of any club - he's been at Spurs, so he's not going to Arsenal, he's been at United so he's not going to City, Liverpool wouldn't have him.

"Would he go to a middle of the table club? I just don't see him there, I really don't. It's either international football or maybe Italy.

"The Italian champions this year will be Inter Milan, with Antonio Conte, who plays his type of football - so maybe you can get away with it a little bit more in Italy, because it was certainly a turn-off for Spurs supporters."
