José Mourinho has been without a job since last December. His last game was the 3-1 loss against Liverpool at Anfield, with Manchester United. Five months have gone by, too much for someone who thrives with the competition. He was one of the coaches rumored to take over the Real Madrid job before Zidane did, but he's now getting ready to return to work.
"I have a lot of qualities and one of these is I know how to respect other clubs and how they manage their team - has he told RMC - I've never said "This club wants me, this one has contacted me". When I left Manchester United in December, I immediatly took the decision to return to work in summer. I hope I'll get a bench in July. I want a project I really like".
After the troubled times in England, Mourinho's looking for another experience: "It's hard for me to talk about Manchester. I can't talk about it with the same freedom and happiness I could talk about other clubs".
