What next for sacked Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho?


Jose Mourinho’s spell at Manchester United came to an end on Tuesday.

After a dismal start to the 2018/2019 Premier League campaign, with United being sixth in the league and a staggering 19 points behind league-leaders and fierce rivals Liverpool, the top dogs at Old Trafford have finally decided to part ways with the Portuguese.

Unhappy players, dull football, poor results and the lack of promoting players within may have all played their part on Mourinho's dismissal, but one thing we do know is that it's another job he has been sacked from.

Here, Press Association Sport takes a look at where the marmite coach might go next.

Return to Inter Milan

Mourinho is still a hugely-popular figure in Milan after he won an unprecedented treble with the Italian club in 2010.

Current boss Luciano Spalletti is under pressure with his side out of the Champions League and a distant third in Serie A.

Return to Real Madrid

Another of Mourinho’s former clubs, and one whose president Florentino Perez has reportedly considered hiring the Portuguese for a second spell at the club.

Mourinho led Real to the La Liga title in 2012, but left the following year after a fall-out with senior players.

Paris Saint-Germain


Having won titles in Portugal, England, Spain and Italy, maybe France would be the next natural step for the 55-year-old.

Mourinho would surely relish the chance to work with Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani.

Plus they face United in the Champions League early next year.

Tottenham Hotspur

With Mauricio Pochettino heavily linked with Manchester United, could a job swap prove viable?


Mourinho enjoyed living in London during his stints with Chelsea and would inherit a squad seemingly far better equipped to challenge for honours than the one he has left behind.


Mourinho has said he prefers the day-to-day routine of managing a club, but now could be the time to give international football a try with his native Portugal. 

Fernando Santos is the current boss and led Portugal to the Euro 2016 title.
