Jose Mourinho, a man who has been sequestered from football management ever since he was sacked by Chelsea in mid-December 2015, has confirmed that he will be back in action at the start of the upcoming season.

“In July I will be back,” Jose Mourinho told AP. “So we are in May. May to July is nothing. I keep enjoying my life which I’m doing, keep enjoying my family. But in July I am back.”

Mourinho however, remained tight-lipped as ever when asked about where he would begin his next managerial adventure. The 53-year-old ex-Chelsea boss is considered as one of the best managers in modern football and has been touted as the front-runner to replace Louis van Gaal as Manchester United manager next season.

Speaking to media in Mexico after coaching a FIFA legends team to a 9-8 defeat against a Mexican All-Star outfit, the former Inter Milan manager quashed the persistent rumors of  his potential switch to Old Trafford.

“I don’t know. I know nothing about it really,” he said. “I don’t have a club and I was waiting for these guys [the FIFA Legends] to win the match to give me a hand but because I lost the match it’s even more difficult to get a club!”

There have been quite a few strong rumors doing the rounds in the last few weeks that the Red Devils have reportedly asked Mourinho to wait one year so that the under-fire van Gaal can see out his complete contract. But with this announcement, the ex-Real Madrid boss has admitted that he misses the game and looks forward to returning.

With Paris Saint-Germain also vying for the Portuguese mastermind along-with Manchester United’s Champions League hopes looking bleak after the defeat to West Ham, Mourinho looks all set to return to the touchline quite soon.
