It’s Official: Jose Mourinho Confirms he Will Take Over Man Utd on July 1st

Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been backed by several sources to take over from Louis Van Gaal at Man Utd in the summer.

Now the Portuguese manager has further fuelled those rumours by claiming that he is ready to make his comeback to football management.

When my kids were young, we could move and experience different countries and in my case, different clubs and different football, but there is a moment when they need some stability,” he said.

“They are 19 years old and 16 years old, with university and their football, they need some stability and the family needs some stability.”

“We decided to come to London and, at the moment, I don’t have a job. I don’t know where football will take me because in football, you never know, but for sure, as a family, our home will be in London.”

“As a manager, I’ve worked since 2000 and I last stopped when I left Chelsea in 2007. I stopped for a few months and now is the second time I’ve stopped in 15 or 16 years so it’s not a drama, but for sure, I will go back soon. As a professional, I’m ready to move.”

He has also hinted that he would prefer to keep working in Premier League.

“I always say that I need competition and I need competition every week, and in Spain I was at an amazing club but I had four matches a year: Barcelona v Real Madrid, Real Madrid v Barcelona. After that we’d win 4-0, 5-0, 4-1, 6-1,” he added.

“It was difficult to win because two monsters are together, but it was easy to win matches. Difficult to win the league because you are competing against another team that also win and win and win like you do, so in the end I was champion in Spain with 100 points and I lost a league in Spain with 91 points.”

“In England, you can win the leagues with 75 points, maybe less, so I needed competition.”
