Mourinho eyes national team job

José Mourinho revealed he saw his return to management coming in the international arena.

Mourinho is yet to take on a new role since being sacked by Manchester United in December last year.

The Portuguese tactician has been linked with several clubs, but Mourinho said he could take the helm of a national team for the first time instead.

"I want to compete in new competitions. I think about the World Cup and the European Championships," he told Eleven Sports.

Mourinho: "Right now I see myself at a national team"

"For a long time I have had the desire to try out such an adventure. Right now, I see myself more at a national team than with a new club. Is Portugal the right team for me? Not necessarily."

Mourinho was in charge at Old Trafford for two and a half years, winning the Europa League, EFL Cup and a Community Shield.

He is also a two-time Champions League winner after successes with Porto and Inter.
