Lyon have failed a bid to hire Jose Mourinho as their new manager, with the Portuguese coach wants to return to Premier League.

According to RMC,  Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas contacted Mourinho about the vacant managerial role following the sacking of Sylvinho.

However, the former Manchester United and Chelsea boss made it clear that his focus is returning to management in the Premier League.

Daily Mail claims Mourinho is open to the idea of managing Tottenham should Mauricio Pochettino leave.

Mourinho is currently waiting for the right opportunity to return to club management after being sacked as Red Devils boss in December last year.
