Former Man United boss Jose Mourinho targets a club with 'structural empathy'

:Headline: Former Man United boss Jose Mourinho targets a club with 'structural empathy':
Mourinho has a checklist of conditions he wants his next destination to provide.
PA | 9mo

Jose Mourinho says his next job in football will be at a club that does not have internal conflict.

Mourinho has been without a managerial job since he was sacked by Manchester United after a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield in December.

The former Chelsea boss intends to return to the game and confirmed he has already turned down one job offer that did not match his own ambitions.

"I don't want an internal conflict," the 56-year-old told the Telegraph. "I want internal empathy.

"I want to work in a club that understands there is a structure in place.

"During my career I have been working in every possible circumstance. The most successful situations are not because of the structure but because of the empathy in the structure."

Since leading Porto to a shock Champions League success at Porto in 2004, Mourinho has managed United, Chelsea (twice), Real Madrid and Inter.

  • 8 domestic titles
  • 8 domestic cups
  • 2 Champions Leagues
  • 2 UEFA Cup/Europa Leagues
  • 5 Super Cups/Community Shields

The Portuguese said his next destination could be "a club that is not ready to be a trophy-hunter immediately but with the ambition to be a trophy-hunter."

He added: "If it is a club without ambition I wouldn't go. I refused (the job offer) because I want high-level football and ambitions at the highest level.

"That is my second item (of requirement). My first item is structural empathy. I want to work with people that I love. People I want to work with, that I am happy to work with, with whom I share the same ideas.

"It was what I had at Inter. There are clubs like this. Normally, that is a very important part of a successful club."
