Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is not keen on managing a club in his next job and would prefer to take charge of a national team instead.
In an interview with Eleven Sports, the Portuguese hinted that his new job might be with a national team, but moved to make it clear that it does not have to be his native country.
“I want to compete in new competitions. For a long time, I have had the desire to try out such an adventure,” he said
"Right now, I see myself more at a national team than with a new club. Is Portugal the right team for me? Not necessarily.” he added.
Mourinho has been out of management since last year December when he parted ways with Manchester United and has been working as a pundit with beIN Sports.
He, however, did not rule out entirely on managing a club, but only if the project appeals to him.
“Winning a fifth championship in a different country or the Champions League with a third club are things I'd like to do,"
"I want to be happy, not necessarily win, I want to be happy and I don't want to accept a proposal without being convinced of it, that's what I've always thought,"
Mourinho has been linked with the vacant post at Chelsea, even though the odds are stuck against him, with Frank Lampard said to on top of the list.
