Jose Mourinho wells up when talking about missing football

Former Manchester United and Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho got quite emotional when talking about how he missed football.

Mourinho has been without a job since leaving Manchester United last December and he said that he misses the game after first starting his managerial career in the early 1990's.

"The moment I went to professional football was when I had the click," Mourinho said.

"Now, it's serious. It's serious stuff. It's been serious stuff until now. Now it's stopped and instead of enjoy it, I can't really enjoy it. I miss it."


Mourinho has joined Sky Sports as a pundit for the start of this season but he told the broadcaster last month that he is waiting for the right job before diving back into the world of professional football management.

“I have some time to think, to rethink, to analyse and what I feel is exactly that ‘Ze’ (Mourinho’s nickname as a boy) is full of fire.

“My friends tell me ‘enjoy your time, enjoy your July, enjoy your August, enjoy what you never had’. Honestly, I can’t enjoy. I am not happy enough to enjoy.

“I miss my football, I have the fire. The most difficult thing for me is to say ‘no’ to the possibilities I had to work.

“I have to be patient and wait for the right one and the right one is one at the dimension of what I am as a manager.

“I have to be patient and that is the most difficult thing because I had the impulse during this period so many times (to say) ‘yes, I go’. No, I cannot go. I cannot go. I have to wait exactly for the right one.”
