Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho confirms July return to management

Jose Mourinho

Rumors surrounding Jose Mourinho and Manchester United have been coming up since the Portuguese manager was sacked from Chelsea last December. The Special One and Man U have both kept it on the downlow, but many sources report that Mourinho will be coaching The Red Devils next season.

Louis van Gaal, United’s current manager believed he will be allowed to see out the last year of his contract if he wins the FA Cup and lands the fourth position in the Premier League table. The latter seems very unlikely as The Red Devils are trailing city rivals Manchester City by two points will one fixture left in the calendar.

Be that as it may, Mourinho assured the world of football he would be back managing by July. “Of course I miss it. In July I will be back. So we are in May. May to July is nothing. I keep enjoying my life, which I’m doing, keep enjoying my family. But in July I will be back,” said The Special One in an interview with The Mirror.

Mourinho did not hint who he would be managing but he seemed very certain about his near future.
The Red Devils are now focusing on getting the fourth spot to play Champions League football next season, but Man City would have to slip against Swansea City before Man U can even consider that possibility.
