    I think if there is one "big" club that would be desperate enough to approach him, it would be them.

    PSG will be sort of perfect from him. Its a nothing league, where he wont be exposed for the usual shite he does in league's like the Premiership and La Liga, and he'll be tasked to try and win the Champions League. Its the perfect place to reinvent himself.

    Maybe.

    The only thing is PSG are desperate to win the CL and even though Jose has won it twice I don't think his recent CL record is very impressive.

    Feels like his tactics in Europe are outdated. Ties these days are very high scoring. Mourinho still seems to think he can shithouse his way to 1-0 aggregate wins.

    Maybe I'm wrong and he'll end up there but for now I can't see it.

    They're desperate for the CL, Jose hasn't gone close to winning it in a long long time. Plus all those egos? He'd be eaten alive. The thought of Jose managing Neymar is hilarious.

    Neymar and Mbappe as fullbacks in a 6-3-1 is quite a funny sight, mind. PSG should go for him just for this alone, but I'm afraid they know better.

    Plus he had no respect for Utd, regularly insulting the club and belittling our history whenever he was under pressure. Football heritage and all that.

    Can you imagine the shit he'd say about PSG to defend himself when things start to go wrong.

    I think PSG would be perfect for his ego.
    The league is a cakewalk, the owners have shitloads of money.
    He can claim that " I have won titles in 5 different leagues"..

    And if it does not work again, it is 2 birds in one shot. PSG and Jose, there would rarely be a marriage of such a despised club and a manager.

    I'd say he's probably eyeing whichever job comes up next between PSG and Juventus but can see Ronaldo shooting that down. Maybe Inter if they can spend big and Juventus aren't looking as dominant.

    I think he's likely done trying to manage in England and he's obviously not getting the Real Madrid or Barcelona job so he's out for Spain too.

    Juventus fans despise him.

    He's got no chance of getting that job.

    And that's before considering how he's lost three dressing rooms in a row and been sacked twice in a row in disgrace. Cant see Juve being attracted to that.

    Ah yeah that's true. It's PSG or Inter for Jose then. He's burned a lot of bridges and his credibility is at an all-time low right now.

    He's going to end up managing Saudi Arabia or Qatar in turn for the 2022 World Cup. I've said this for a while.

    Mou thought he was a shoe in there, reckon even PSG would rather stick with Tuchel.

    I think Inter are considering both him and Conte, but he may get the job due to his past connections.

    Inter is a good platform for him to build his reputation again. It is a high pressure job as they expect more than just regular top 4 finishes, but I think taking the Real job would not be good for him. He may refuse to accept it, but he shows signs of severe burn-out, and Real in their current state and with their expectations would send him into a meltdown.

    Lyon could replace Génésio that would be Mourinho's greatest job of his career, try to beat PSG.

    Thought Inter for a while, today's news pushes that up a notch.

    No way will Spalletti be there next year so will certainly be a vacancy. Simeone would be their top target and he's staying at Atletico Madrid for a few more years (think that's another club I could see him at).

    Please let him take the PSG job. If Jose thought Pogba was a drama queen, wait until Neymar tells him he can't play for a few weeks to party in Brazil.

    Imagine being so deluded as to think a toxic vile despicable human being can get away with getting another Top Tier Job like how they give those rotational english managers a job in this league. Mourinho is done out here for Life. He can start again in some farmers league and rise up by winning the champions league.:devil::devil::devil:

    Maybe its time he retires from club football. He should try the Portuguese gig then after 2022 slide into oblivion.

    The way he was talking about Real Madrid on his recent TV pundit appearances.

    He thought he was going back I'm sure of it.

    It's going to be interesting to see what Jose does. He claims he will be at a club for pre-season.

    Does he have it in him to adapt, learn and change?

    A new set of player will know that if they don't like him they can down tools for a few months and everyone will say Jose strikes again. He's going to have to show some serious man man management skills (skills i don't think he has)

    I'm sure he feels aggrieved and will want to prove he can still operate at the top and win things. I imagine a number of Italian teams will take him, not sure who in Spain or England would have him?

    PSG? Do they want his brand of football? Can't imagine Neymar and Mbappe would enjoy playing as wingbacks...

    Does anyone know if he cried when the news broke about Real Madrid having picked Zidane instead? :lol:

    There was a report in one of the papers today that said he'd agreed a 3 year contract so seems he was even tipping off British journos. Maybe jumped the gun or Zidane suddenly decided to accept the job last night.

    Delighted. Some cultists on here were cocksure his glistening reputation and past glories would see him conquer the world once again and that madrid would snap him up no questions asked. Hihihi.

    You're wrong. Again.

    Recent history would suggest not. If he had, he'd still be United manager.

    Stubborn as he may be, I wonder if he'll realise he sort of has no option but to adapt and change his working methods at this point. Genuinely reckon this is his last shot at a fairly big job, wherever he goes. If he fails this time I can't see anyone taking him on for the considerable future.

    PSG is the only big job he has any hope of landing in the near future, so he'll probably hold out for that if there's any possibility of it happening.

    Inter would make a bit of sense, but I think taking it would end his chances of ever getting a real top job again unless he does something miraculous there like winning Serie A or the Champions League.

    I really hope so.

    I had a horrible feeling he'd known for a while the Madrid job was a possibility which is why he completely gave up at Utd. Him doing that thinking he was going back to Madrid only to be told nah sorry Jose, don't want you mate makes me feel a warm glow of happiness :lol:

    He had a chance to do this at United but didn't. Don't see him ever changing.
