‘Hungry’ Mourinho admits he’s waiting for ‘the right club’

Jose Mourinho has admitted that he is hungry to get back into the managerial saddle, but is willing to wait for ‘the right club’ to come calling.

With European clubs starting their preparations for the upcoming 2019/20 campaign, Jose Mourinho finds himself in the strange situation of being without a club at the start of a season for the first time in his career.

He has been out of work since being sacked by Manchester United last December following a dismal start to the campaign which saw the Red Devils sitting 19 points behind league leaders, Liverpool.

The Portuguese has been linked with a number of jobs this summer, including Juventus, Newcastle, and PSG, and he has also thought to have turned down a mammoth offer to take over a team in China.

However, speaking at the British Grand Prix qualifying on Saturday, the former Chelsea boss insisted that while he is ‘hungry’ to return to management, he is waiting for the right club and right project.

“I am hungry to get back, but I will wait for the right club, for the right project,” he told Sky Sports.

“And, in the meantime, I am doing things I like to do. I prefer to work, but I like other sports and this is a good opportunity to enjoy.”
