Jose Mourinho offered the manager's job at the worst team in the world

Published 8 Comments

Despite a disastrous end to his second spell as Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho will not be short of job offers in the future. 

The Portuguese has been linked with replacing Louis van Gaal at Manchester United, while there are also reports he could make a return to Real Madrid as Rafa Benitez continues to struggle. 

But one small club from Brazil have tried their luck with a cheeky offer to tempt Mourinho to South America.

Ibis Sport Club, known as the worst team in the world for their inability to win a single game between 1980 and 1984, have offered the Special One a quite brilliant contract.

The 52-year-old's monthly salary would come in the form of a food hamper, a far cry from his mega-millions salary at Stamford Bridge, and there will be bonuses for wins and losses.

In a surprise turn of events, Mourinho would be sacked by Ibis if he took them to the title. 

Of course, this was all one big joke. The Brazilian club posted the job offer on December 28 - the South American nation's equivalent of April Fool's Day.


Mourinho's immediate future is still unclear, but whoever acquires his services will be gaining one of the top managers in world football.

His longevity is questionable but, in terms of short-term success, there are not many better options out there.

Some doubts have been raised about whether he suits Manchester United, but the Red Devils could live to regret their decision to pass up the Special One - if they do - once again. Only time will tell.
