Mourinho hints at England stay

Jose Mourinho has revealed he hopes to continue working in England’s Premier League as he looks to get back into management following his sacking at Chelsea.

The tactician parted ways with the Blues earlier this season following their dire run of results under the Portuguese, who has since been linked with a host of European clubs.

However, Mourinho is against the idea of uprooting his family to take up a job outside of the United Kingdom, and with Manchester United heavily linked with a move for his services, the 53-year-old looks set to remain in England.

“When my kids were young, we could move and experience different countries and in my case, different clubs and different football, but there is a moment when they need some stability,” he said.

“They are 19 years old and 16 years old, and with university and their football, they need some stability and the family needs some stability.

“We decided to come to London and, at the moment, I don’t have a job. I don’t know where football will take me because, in football, you never know, but for sure, as a family, our home will be in London.

“As a manager, I’ve worked since 2000 and I last stopped when I left Chelsea in 2007. I stopped for a few months and now is the second time I’ve stopped in 15 or 16 years, so it’s not a drama, but for sure, I will go back soon. As a professional, I’m ready to move.”
