Former Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho has stated he’ll be back in July, but didn’t mention where.
The Portuguese manager was relieved of his duties at Chelsea, following a poor start to the season.
And having been linked repeatedly with LVG’s job, even though no deal has been made yet, Mourinho is certain of a job by July.
“In July I will be back,” Mourinho told AP. “So we are in May. May to July is nothing. I keep enjoying my life which I’m doing, keep enjoying my family. But in July I am back.
“Of course I miss it.”
He does hold some concerns that a late appointment will mean that he does not have full control over preparations for the campaign ahead.
“It’s difficult because when you get a new club in this period normally the clubs have already done their work,” he said. “I’m not the Chelsea manager but I organised the Chelsea pre-season in many aspects because I did that 10 months ago.
“Clubs always have their commercial, marketing departments involved in everything. When a new manager arrives in May, June it’s very difficult to touch in some points but we know that.
“Scouting is done during the year. We know everybody, so it’s just a question of trying to choose the players that your team needs.”
The ex-Real Madrid boss, who was speaking in Mexico after coaching a FIFA legends team to a 9-8 defeat against a Mexican All-Star outfit, claimed to know nothing of a potential switch to Manchester United.
“I don’t know. I know nothing about it really,” he said. “I don’t have a club and I was waiting for these guys [the FIFA Legends] to win the match to give me a hand but because I lost the match it’s even more difficult to get a club!”
