Manchester Uited sacked Jose Mourinho in Decemnber and the former head coach has since been left without a job. But now the Portuguese has admitted that he want to move to France.
Mourinhohas has made it clear to Lyon and Ligue 1 rivals Monaco that he would be interested in taking over in the summer, according to L’Equipe.
Moreover, Lyon manager Bruno Genesio has made a shock claim by admitting that it would be “an honour” if Jose Mourinho replaced him in the dugout.
Genesio is out of contract at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais at the end of the season but chairman Jean-Michel Aulas has shied away from talking about his future.
Genesio has responded to Mourinho’s links.
“We can only respect Mourinho,” Genesio said. “He’s a coach who has won everywhere he’s been.
“He is maybe not the one I identify with personality wise, but I respect him a lot regarding his records and achievements in football. He’s won everything.
“Everywhere he’s been he’s won a trophy. He’s won Champions Leagues. Obviously, he’s a great coach, so, if he succeeds me it would be an honour.”
The Portuguese has previously won titles in his homeland, England, Italy and Spain and has spoken about wanting to claim a “fifth league” in his career.
