Jose Mourinho has hinted that his job as the Spurs head coach might not be the last in his football management career.

The ‘special one’ as he is known, has enjoyed tremendous success as a manager in the last two decades, having won league titles in four different European countries, two Champions League titles and numerous other trophies.

Despite having achieved all that a manager can dream of in the sport, the 57-year-old certainly seems like he still has the same hunger to succeed as he once did.

The Portuguese coach who has previously enjoyed stints with both Chelsea and Manchester United, revealed a few months ago that the Tottenham job could be his last one in the Premier League (Evening Standard).

Mourinho was asked about a potential switch to Brazil to manage the national side or a club team.

In an interview Brazlian outlet Esporte Interativo (as translated by Sport Witness), Mourinho said: “The future is never known. In football, you never know. Today I’m here, tomorrow I don’t know where I’ll be.

“Today I say that I want to be in Europe, in the biggest national club competition which is the Premier League, in the biggest international club competition which is the Champions League.

“Tomorrow you don’t know where you are. I say no today, but tomorrow I don’t know if I will say yes.”

Spurs Web Opinion

I would be extremely surprised if the Tottenham job is the last one that Jose takes in European football as it is clear that he still has the hunger and competitive spirit needed to carry on. I can also see him potentially managing Portugal in the World Cup in the future but hopefully, he first wins some trophies at Spurs before moving on.
