Jose Mourinho Tears Up In Emotional Interview, Admits Missing Football

Published

on

Former Chelsea and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho couldn’t contain his feeling as he burst into tears during an interview as he conceded he missed the thrill and chill of the beautiful game.

The Portuguese international was relieved of his duty by Manchester United in December after leading the Red Devils to their worst ever Premier League start and replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The 56-year-old has been linked with lots of jobs, but it appears as though the continued absence from the game is starting to get to Mourinho.

Mourinho said: “I was just enjoying. The moment I went to professional football was when I had the click. “And now I stop, and instead of enjoying it, I can’t really enjoy it. I miss it.”

Mourinho, who has since signed with Sky Sports for the season as a pundit, starting off with the United-Chelsea clash last week where Red Devils fans sang his name. His eight month absence is his biggest break from the game since the gap between leaving Chelsea in September 2007 and joining Inter Milan in June 2008.

Speaking with Sky Sports: “This is basically the first time I have tiFeaturedme to think, the first time I am in (home town) Setubal at the end of July or beginning of August in more than 20 years.

“I have some time to think, to rethink, to analyze and what I feel is exactly that ‘Ze’ 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, I have a compromise with myself, with people that love me, with so many fans that I have around the world, so many people that I inspired.”

He added: “Why do I say ‘no’? I say ‘no’ because it’s not the level of challenge that I want.

“It’s not a question of [saying], ‘okay I have this offer and I’m going to take it’.

“I have to be patient and wait for the right opportunity and the right opportunity is one that is at the same size and the same level that I am as a manager.”
