Despite having lost the Manchester United job on Tuesday, Jose Mourinho remained at his witty best, as he made a typically emphatic statement in an interview with Sky Sports.
The Special One simply stated: “I think you know me, I don’t change. What I did when I left Chelsea for example is that same that I’m going to do now.
“I keep the good things and I don’t speak about anything that happened in the club. I could speak about not as good but that’s not me. Manchester United has a future without me, and I have a future without Manchester United.”
And while the Red Devils have wasted no time in naming an interim managerial replacement in the form of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Mourinho could very well follow suit by confirming his next destination.
According to The Times, the Portuguese tactician has already attracted interest from three top European clubs, two of which happen to be his former teams.
The source states: “The Times understands that he would be interested in a return to Real Madrid. Florentino Pérez, the club president, appointed Santiago Solari in October, but there is a feeling in Spain that Real could be looking for a new manager next summer.
“Benfica are also monitoring Mourinho’s situation, and Inter Milan, another of his former clubs, could move for him if they sack Luciano Spalletti after his failure to qualify for the Champions League knockout stages.”
Just where will the 2-time Champions League winner end up?
