Mourinho insists he’s ‘too young’ to retire from football

Jose Mourinho has insisted that he has no intentions of retiring from management after his recent sacking as Manchester United boss.

The 55-year-old coach has enjoyed a hugely successful career, winning eight league titles during his spells with Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid.

However, many now believe that his pragmatic playing style and abrasive approach to man management have become outdated, with the Portuguese losing his job at Manchester United after leading the club to their worst start to a league campaign in almost 30 years.

Mourinho though clearly has no plans to quit football and predicts that he will be back in elite level management soon.

“I want to coach. I am too young, I am in football for a long, long time but I will be 56 in a couple of weeks and am really too young,” Mourinho told BEIN Sports.

“Where I am going to stay is where I belong, I belong to top football. I belong to top-level football and (that) is where I am going to be.”

Mourinho is currently favourite to become the next manager of his former club Real Madrid.
