José Mourinho breaks cover to rule himself out of Benfica managerial role

"I think I can safely say today that I have no intention of working in Portugal", Mourinho told Correio da Manha TV.

"Jose is one of the greatest football managers of all time, and we hope that his expert analysis and charismatic personality will be enjoyed by our millions of viewers", a beIN spokesman said in a statement.

As reported earlier, 55-year-old Mourinho has been heading Manchester United since 2016.

Jose Mourinho has spoken on what the future holds for him following his recent sacking from Manchester United and refused to rule out a return to Inter.

But, the Portuguese manager finds himself at his lowest ebb, following his departure from Manchester United, who sacked him last month.

And, while his appointment might not go down well with some of the players, the Real Madrid president is of the opinion that the Portuguese is the right man to revive the club's fortunes.

Now that he is unemployed again, Mourinho has been repeatedly linked with a number of high-profile jobs.


It was suggested that Mourinho, whose very first managerial role came at Benfica, could head back to Portugal, but he insists that will not be the case.

"When a professional returns or is invited to return to a club, it's a great honour".

"I have learned that, when you leave a club, you don't go around talking about it, you don't wash your dirty laundry in public".

He has previously rejoined a former club as he did with his two spells at Chelsea and is seeing similar moves discussed when it comes to possible openings at Real Madrid and Inter .

It was never going to be an easy season after both Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo left but Julen Lopetegui had a nightmare time before being replaced by Santiago Solari.

His record speaks for itself and various new job opportunities have been mooted since he became available to take charge at a new club.
