Former Manchester United manager Mourinho expects return to coaching this summer
Jose Mourinho says he plans to be back coaching in July.
The former Manchester United boss has been working as a commentator since being sacked by the Premier League side in December.
Mourinho has maintained that he would be back on the bench soon and now says he made the decision to sit it out until the summer from the moment United let him go.
He also claims he’ll be back on the bench in July working a project that intrigues him.
“I have a lot of qualities and one of them is to respect other clubs and their management,” Mourinho told French radio station RMC. “I have never spoken like ‘this club wanted me, they contacted me.’
“When I left Manchester United in December, I immediately took the decision I want to work from summer. I hope to be back to work in July in a project I really like.”
Bruno Genesio stepping down at Lyon brought about a number of links to the French side back in April, but a number of high-profile positions are expected to come open this summer.
