Jose Mourinho has revealed that it is unlikely that his next job will be in the Premier League.
The Portuguese has been out of the game since he was sacked by Manchester United in December, prompted by a run of disappointing results that culminated in a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool.
He is eyeing a return to management next season, but insists he will not be taking over another club in the Premier League and hit out at those who doubt his credentials after his lack of success at United.
“I’m back in London but I don’t think the next stop will be in the Premier League,” he told DAZN.
Mourinho was also asked what he could bring to the table for prospective employers who may be looking to offer him a job, insisting that some of his former players would refer to him as being a “b*stard”.
“[They say] ‘Jose the man is emotional, he thinks so much about others’. ‘Jose the coach is pragmatic, intelligent and domineering’. ‘I like Jose as a person, it’s a shame that people know the coach more’.
“How would players describe me in one word? Some will say a bastard. Why should they choose me? To win. In fact, I’d ask them directly: ‘If you want to win, if the one condition is winning, then we can start talking.'”
