Me and a mate were having a discussion the other day about Jose's flirtation with PSG.

Other than PSG which I think would be a good fit for Jose (a team that is so superior in their league that you can win at a canter and focus on the UCL), but beyond that where is he to go in club football?

He has probably well and truly burned his bridges at Chelsea, City probably wouldn't hire him, nor would Arsenal. Would he go to Liverpool? They probably wouldn't take him now he has managed us, and after his run ins with Rafa I don't think the Liverpool faithful would have been too pleased with him before he managed us. Real won't have him back and Barcelona certainly wouldn't hire him, so that rules out Spain and top clubs in England. Would he go back to Italy? from what I heard he didn't enjoy his time much in Italy and he has burned his bridges at Inter. I don't see Bayern looking at Jose, he just doesn't fit the kind of managers they go for. Besides I think its obvious they have their eye on Julian Nagelsmann as a long term option. How soon they choose to go for him could be the question. Which only leaves PSG as an option for a top club in one of Europe's top five leagues. I don't see him going back to manage in Portugal. So for Jose it might be PSG or bust when he eventually parts ways with ourselves.

Or is it, with the looming international break a thought crossed my mind, would Jose make a good international manager? His pragmatic style and his history with cup competitions is excellent, I think he has won at least one cup in every year of his managerial career. If not then it certainly feels like he has, when at Chelsea he would win the league cup or FA cup nearly every year. He has won 12 cups, to his 9 league titles. That isn't including his 5 community shield or equivalents he has won as well. If you include those as knock out cup competitions then he has won 17 cups. Personally I don't count them, but either way his style certainly seems to pay off in knock out cup competitions. So from that point of view international football should suit him well. Where he might struggle is with him being a control freak how would he feel about not managing his players on a day to day basis.

It might be something he will have to get used to if he wants to extend his career too much further.

Have had this discussion before and i had him. down at some point as portugal manager.

But i tbought italy before that.

I think it will be PSG although I wouldn’t be surprised if they went for Potch, also I can see Bayern being ideal for Mourinho before pep their team was huge and althletic.

England is and option but Perez has said he would like him back at Madrid.

He bigs up his time at inter a lot as well left on good terms if I remember rightly, was It not moratti who let slip he was off to United.
England job would be prefect for him tho.

Would you guys like him as rngland manager?

Some fans only want an english manager but we have limited choice if that's how we look at it.

Id like to see him as england manager.

Rewz, I worry that Pochettino will end up at PSG. Although they really want that elusive UCL win. In that regard Jose is probably a better bet, he certainly has the track record.

Jred, I thought Inter looked into taking legal action when Jose left. I also think Jose likes to keep mentioning his achievements at Inter as it was probably his biggest achievement.

I would like to see Jose as England manager at some point. I think he would do well at it.

They kissed and made up it was after Jose had dinner with moratti that it was let slip he was off to united .
Moratti has spoke in glowing terms of Jose and vice versa . Very Italian coach imo
Also England would be the typical underdog type team for Jose it's perfect for him.

If Jose keeps winning, and if he perhaps lightens up a little then there will be no shortage of top clubs happy to take him when he wants to move on.

04 Nov 2017 09:28:53
I think the worry is who succeeds Jose. Not many contenders around. Everyone says Poch but I can't see it myself.

I like the Monaco manager as well.
