Darwin-inspired Mourinho open to adapting his ways
Jose Mourinho has suggested he is open to adapting and changing his methods and confirmed he will work with new backroom staff when he makes his coaching return.
Jose Mourinho has spoken about the necessity to adapt when he makes the return to the coach’s bench, where he is set to make a “few changes” to the staff that sit alongside him.
Mourinho was sacked by Manchester United in December amid criticism from fans, former players and pundits about his often negative, defensive football that was deemed antithetical to the club’s attacking tradition.
Since his dismissal, Mourinho has been on a coaching hiatus. And in an interview with Sky Sports, the ex-Chelsea boss said time away from the game has given him a chance to reflect, suggesting that he may be open to adapting and changing his methods after citing Charles Darwin.
"Change is not always for the better, sometimes change is for the worse," he said. "But it's important to understand the change and adapt to it and I'm really thinking about that at the moment."
Mourinho putting his future staff in place
A major part of this change will start with those who surround him, as the ex-Chelsea boss confirmed he will work with a new set of backroom staff once he makes the return to management.
"I'm thinking, I'm studying, I'm producing things all the time. I go to different sports and I analyse them, I meet my future staff because my future staff is going to be different than my previous because I think it is the moment for a few changes,” he said.
“It is nothing from the personal point of view of course not, but in relation to the knowledge, to the motivation I think it is a good time to do that.”

Mourinho eager to return
The 56-year-old coach, who has received offers from Benfica and China since his departure from Old Trafford, also admitted that he has found it hard to enjoy his newfound free time and is eager to return to the game “full of fire.”
“My friends tell me ‘enjoy your time, enjoy your July, enjoy your August, enjoy what you never had,” he said.
“Honestly, I can’t enjoy. I'm not happy enough to enjoy. I miss my football, I have the fire, I have a compromise with myself, with people that love me, with so many fans that I have around the world, so many people that I inspired.”
