Former Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho in an exclusive interview with BeIN SPORTS said he is aiming for a top level job while defending his time at Manchester United.
Jose got sacked in December which made way for the team six straight wins under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Mourinho has no intentions of letting United be his final job. He said on BeIN SPORTS: “I want to coach.
“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.
“Where I am going to stay is where I belong, I belong to top football. I belong to top-level football and (that) is where I am going to be.”
Mourinho rejected criticism of his time at Old Trafford, amid reports of player unrest and a fall-out with French midfielder Paul Pogba.
He said on beIN SPORTS: “Sometimes we comment on what we see, but we don’t know what is behind the scenes and influences what we see. I think that is a fundamental thing.
“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.”
Mourinho while speaking on a role as a pundit for coverage of the Asian Cup, said it was “very interesting” to experience a different view on “the new football” as part of a “learning process.. to be richer”.
Mourinho defended himself against suggestions of negative football, pointing to his track record of success and hope for a top level job, Mourinho.
“One thing is image, another thing is communication, another thing is good structure behind, another thing is to win and get results,” the former Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid boss said.
“It is very easy to play well and not win, it is very easy to be behind a certain idea of a certain football without results.
“The people that win and the people that win consistently – because you can win isolated and then disappear – has obviously a different idea about that.
“If you speak about (Pep) Guardiola, (Carlo) Ancelotti, about one where obviously I belong, that have a career of victories for a long, long period, where are the young ones with a real impact in terms of results? Where are they?”
