The Portuguese gaffer in an exclusive interview with Soccer AM’s Tubes revealed that the next challenge he would love to take after his time at Old Trafford is to go into international football.
Mourinho’s success at club level has seen him linked with the top international jobs throughout his career, namely England and his native Portugal but the manager was mum on where would be his preferred destination on the international stage.
When asked if he would like to move into international football, the United boss refused to be drawn on his preferred destination but confirmed the lure of major tournaments would be too good to resist.
He said: “There will be a moment in my career where I would prefer that nature of the job, being more analytical and preparing a team inside doors but competes less,” he told Tubes in an interview that will air on Soccer AM on Saturday.
“The experience of living a World Cup or European Championship from the inside is an experience I want to have after so many years I’ve had in football,” he added.
Before embarking on the new chapter of his managerial career, Mourinho has been tasked with rekindling the success seen in Sir Alex Ferguson’s trophy-laden tenure at Manchester United.
