Jose Mourinho has revealed he wants a club where he can “play to win” as he eyes a return to football management.
Emery, who’s Arsenal side lost 5-4 on penalties to Liverpool after a 5-5 draw in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, isn’t in immediate danger of being sacked.
But should Arsenal be considering Mourinho as a replacement, the Portuguese has clearly outlined what he’s looking for in his next club in an interview on
Mourinho told The Coaches’ Voice: “The only thing that I know is what I don’t want, and what I don’t want is crystal clear. What I want, the general profile of course, but I can’t say clubs or countries.
“I am quite pathological in this sense that I have to play to win, and then if I win or I don’t win that’s my problem, and the players’ and the club’s and the structure.
“But I need a project where the feeling is I play to win.
“If someone gives me a wonderful, incredible, amazing, 10-year contract and tells me ‘the objective of the team is to stay in the first part of the table, if you finish seventh or eighth or ninth it is perfect, that’s not for me.
“That’s my nature. Of course sometimes I remember what I won before, but it’s not me, so my next is to fight to win.”
