Dubai: Jose Mourinho has said he does not expect to return to management next season after being sacked by Premier League team Tottenham Hotspur and he will wait for the right club with the right culture.
Tottenham, the former coach of Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Manchester United, was sacked after 17 months of coaching the London club and six days before they were defeated in the League Cup Final 1-0 by Manchester City.
Despite being linked to a number of open jobs – including Celtic in Scotland and Bayern Munich in Germany – the 58-year-old is in no hurry to return to the hot seat at another club and is set to work as an analyst within this year in euros.
“I have no plans. I am continuing with my normal life. I feel refreshed. I feel calm. I am on vacation. I have more time to do my homework and analyze. I will wait to return to football.” Not just for the right club, but for the right culture. Next season may be premature, we’ll see. ”
Tottenham topped the league in December before falling into the standings and finishing seventh with 53 points from 33 games before their game against Sheffield United on Sunday.
