Jose Mourinho has spoken for the first time since he was sacked by Manchester United

Jose Mourinho was sacked after 3-1 loss against Liverpool and since that the Red Devils have won all their matches, until now, with caretaker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Mourinho, who was appearing as a pundit for Qatar-based broadcaster beIN Sports on its coverage of the Asian Cup, says he still belongs at the top level. (via BBC)

“I want to coach. I belong to top-level football and [that] is where I am going to be,” Mourinho said.

“I am too young, I am in football for a long, long time but I will be 56 in a couple of weeks and am really too young.

“If I tell you for example that I consider one of the best jobs of my career was to finish second with Manchester United in the Premier League, you say ‘this guy is crazy – he won 25 titles…’

“But I keep saying this because people don’t know what is going on behind the scenes. Sometimes we, on this side of the camera, analyse things with a different perspective.”
