Watch: Mourinho close to tears as he admits he misses being a manager

A footage of an emotional Jose Mourinho has emerged on the internet with the Portuguese manager almost in tears while admitting that he misses working as a football manager.

The 58-year-old vacated his post as the manager of Manchester United in December 2018 with the Red Devils' struggles failing to go away and was replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Since then, 'The Special One' has not been seen in any dugout despite claims that he has received offers from top European clubs and national teams in months past.

Not too long ago, Mourinho revealed that he was waiting for the right offer to arrive and in doing so, has taken on the role as a pundit for Sky Sports' Premier League coverage this season. In a footage of an interview from Sky Sports' documentary "A Day With José" that has emerged on Twitter, the Portuguese manager was almost reduced to tears as he explained that he misses club football management.

"The moment I went to professional football was when I had the click," Mourinho said.

"Now, it's serious. It's serious stuff. It's been serious stuff until now. Now it's stopped and instead of enjoy it, I can't really enjoy it. I miss it."


In a desperate attempt to get back to football management, Jose recently revealed that he was learning German should in case an offer arrives from a top Bundesliga club.

"I miss football, the adrenaline, the pitch, my work. Football is football," Mourinho told Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Right now, I'm studying German. I didn't know this language. "I speak English, Spanish, Portuguese, French and Italian. I don't exclude anything, not even Germany."
