Ex-United boss Mourinho lands new job in Qatar for Asian Cup

Reuters  Carl Recine

United are said to have paid the out of job boss a sum of £15 million as compensation package last month, allowing him to return to management when he sees fit.

Jose Mourinho is now without a job after being sacked as Manchester United manager last month.

The former Chelsea handler signed an improved contract with United a year ago which was due to expire at the end of the 2019-20 season, with an option of a further season.

The 55-year-old has now finally broken silence on the claims, putting speculation firmly to bed.

"Jose is able to take on another job right now, but is in no rush".

Sunday's 2-0 defeat at home to Real Sociedad was Los Blancos' sixth of the season, which saw them fall 10 points behind league leaders Barcelona.

The La Liga giants are struggling domestically at present, meaning Santiago Solari is already under-fire despite only replacing Julen Lopetegui earlier this season.

When a professional returns or is invited to return to a club it is a tremendous honour.

"There are things that have been said and I do not want to feed those rumours", he said, "but when a player or coach is asked to come back to a club it means they did something positive there". Real Madrid and Inter Milan, two other clubs at which he enjoyed success to different degrees, are also said to be interested in bringing him back.

Mourinho did not offer any further comment about his sacking by Manchester United, who have won all five games under interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær since his departure.

The source added: "There has been no contact, but they did get in touch with Jose after Lopetegui was dismissed, but he told them he was the manager of Manchester United and totally committed to the club".

Benfica's previous coach, Rui Vitória, left by mutual consent last Thursday with the Lisbon club third in the league and has now taken over at the Saudi club Al-Nassr. They're not signing someone they don't know, they are going for someone they know, someone who has already been there.
