Jose Mourinho has revealed the two requirements that his next club would have to meet to sign him.
The decorated manager has been without a club since December 2018, instead working as a television pundit in the meantime.
As per multiple reports, the Portuguese has been linked with several big clubs from all across the continent, including the likes of Benfica, Inter Milan, and Real Madrid, to name a few.
Amid the uncertainty surrounding his future, Mourinho himself has listed the two major requirements a potential suitor will have to fulfil to convince him to make the switch.
Speaking to the Telegraph, the former Manchester United boss stated: “I don’t want an internal conflict. I want internal empathy. I want to work in a club that understands there is a structure in place.
“During my career I have been working in every possible circumstance. The most successful situations are not because of the structure but because of the empathy in the structure.”
“If it is a club without ambition I wouldn’t go,” the 56-year-old continued. “I refused [the job offer] because I want high-level football and ambitions at the highest level.
“That is my second item [of requirement]. My first item is structural empathy. I want to work with people that I love. People I want to work with, that I am happy to work with, with whom I share the same ideas.
“It was what I had at Inter. There are clubs like this. Normally, that is a very important part of a successful club.”
