Jose Mourinho Responds To Speculation Of Return To Real Madrid

Jose Mourinho Responds To Speculation Of Return To Real Madrid

And Mourinho admits it is an honour for him to be linked with a shock return to the Spanish capital in the future.

Jose Mourinho is now without a job after being sacked as Manchester United manager last month.

"There are no issues over Jose's contract with Manchester United".

The 55-year-old had nine games in charge of Benfica in 2000 and also managed Uniao Leiria and Porto in his homeland before leaving for Chelsea in 2004.

"Jose is able to take on another job right now, but is in no rush".

Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that he never planned taking up any job in Portugal at the moment.

Jose Mourinho will join beIN SPORTS, the global sports broadcaster, this week as part of the AFC Asian Cup 2019 and English Premier League coverage, which viewers across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) enjoy exclusively on the leading sports channel.

Solari was initially instated until the end of the season following a heavy 5-1 defeat to Barcelona, but Real fell to a 2-0 home defeat to Real Sociedad at the weekend to leave them fifth in the table - and outside the Champions League places.

Nearly as soon as Jose took his marching orders from Old Trafford last month the former Manchester United boss has been linked with a return to Real.

Real Madrid are the supposed suitors as their disastrous form in La Liga continues under Santiago Solari.

He said on the prospect of returning: "They are things that are said and I will not feed".

"When any professional returns to a club it is a tremendous honour".

José Mourinho has spoken publicly to rule himself out of the vacant manager's job at Benfica, but refused to make any further comment on his dismissal by Manchester United in December.

This is according to The Sun, who add that Chelsea included a similar clause in Mourinho's contract that forced United to pay £15m when they hired him.

Benfica sacked their boss Rui Vitoria after more than three seasons in charge at the Stadium of Light.
