revealed that he will make a return to football very
In his first interview since he was sacked at
Stamford Bridge in December 2015, the Portuguese
says he will not be “fully happy”, until he is back to
his “natural habitat”.
Asked if he was enjoying his time away from the
game, Mourinho told GQ: “No, I am not enjoying it.
I can have everything I love at the same time.
“I can have my family, I can have my friends, I can
have my quiet life, which I also like, and I can have
my football… I can have everything together and I
don’t need to give up on one of them.
“To be fully happy I need everything, so I go back
to football. I think it’s my natural habitat. I have
worked since I can remember, and as a manager
since 2000. I stopped when I left Chelsea in 2007,
for a few months, and now is the second time I
stop in 15 or 16 years, so it is not a drama. But for
sure, I will be back soon.”
Mourinho has been heavily linked with the
Manchester United job and he confirmed he will
prefer to continue working in England.
He added: “I experimented with English, Italian and
Spanish football, three of the top football sides in
the world (Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid). I
always say I need competition – I need competition
every week. In Spain I was at an amazing club but I
had four matches a year — Barcelona v Real
Madrid, Real Madrid v Barcelona — and after that
you win 4-0, 5-0, 5-1, 6-1…’

“Easy to win matches but difficult to win the league,
because you are competing against a team that
wins and wins and wins like you do, because there
are two monsters together.
“So in the end I was champion in Spain with 100
points, and I lost the league in Spain with 91
points. Whereas in England you win leagues with
75, maybe less, so I need competition.”
