Former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho sees himself as a national team manager in his next job rather than jumping back into club football.

The Portuguese coach has been out of management since getting the sack at United in December, although it’s understood he has not been short of offers.

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

“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 is eyeing up a “project” in his next role as a club manager, he added: “Winning a fifth championship in a different country or the Champions League with a third club are things I’d like to do.

“I wouldn’t do it just for that. I only go where a project convinces me.

“I want to be happy, not necessarily win, I want to be happy and I don’t want to accept a proposal without being convinced of it, that’s what I’ve always thought.

“That’s why if [a club] told me ‘today there are no conditions to win, but we want you to create the conditions to win’, then I would evaluate it.”
