Exclusive Interview: Jose Mourinho confirms he does not want Manchester United job


After weeks of speculations and strong rumours flying around, no one saw this coming with Jose Mourinho coming out to deny any interest in taking over at Manchester United next season.

Mourinho is currently in Italy to watch Inter Milan play this weekend vs Sampdoria and meet Inter Milan President Massimo Moratti. Ahead of their much awaited meeting, Mourinho confirmed that he will not be in charge of Inter Milan and neither he is actively seeking the Man United job.

Speaking with La Stampa, Mourinho said: “One thing I want to clarify, I will not be in charge next season. Inter have a project and that is Erick Thohir and Roberto Mancini. 

“Their ideas have my full support and my hope is that the project of the coach and the president continues with great success.

Mourinho not seeking Man United job

When pressed further on the Man United job, Mourinho confirmed that he is not seeking any club or United for that matter, while he is awaiting a club to approach him like he has always done.

Mourinho was fired by Chelsea earlier in the season after poor run of results. Earlier today, Chelsea football club sent an apology letter to their former manager and sent replicas of the two trophies won under Mourinho’s second spell in charge.

According to the Sun, Mourinho said: “My next club? I really don’t know. One thing is certain; I love football and I will return on the fields with the same passion and ambition as always.

“Right now I have respect for every coach and every club. I’m not looking for a club; it is the clubs who seek me.”

Manchester United are suffering their worse run of form in over 2 decades. Louis Van Gaal saw his team lose to FC Midtjylland and will face Shrewsburry in FA Cup fifth round tie. Despite getting the support of United board, a defeat in Fa Cup tie could see Van Gaal’s fate sealed by Ed Woodward and Glazers.
