Mourinho speaks on returning to Premier League next season

Former Manchester United and Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, has admitted that it is unlikely that his next job will see him take charge of a Premier League club.

Mourinho was sacked by United in December and hasn’t managed since then.

The 56-year-old received a considerable amount of criticism during the latter stages of his spell at United, but insists that the trophies he has won during his career demonstrate his quality.

“I’m back in London, now it’s the starting point for me.

“I think the next stop won’t be in the Premier League.

“The trophies are my guarantee of success, even against those who do everything possible to forget, but it’s not possible.

“The last trophy was the Europa League a year-and-a-half ago, someone thinks it was 20 years ago. The last final I played was eight months ago, the final of the FA Cup. Right now I’m preparing for the future,” Mourinho told DAZN.

Speaking about taking time out, Mourinho stated that the rest has been beneficial for him.

“I don’t feel like I’m wasting my time because I’ve been working practically for 18 years without stopping,” he added.
