Jose Mourinho hints that he may take up a managerial role with a national side, six months on from his sacking by Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho has suggested that his next job may see him take over a national side rather than return to club management.

The 56-year-old has been without a club for six months after being sacked by Manchester United last December and has since been linked with a number of sides, including former clubs Chelsea and Real Madrid.

The Portuguese's impressive coaching career has seen him win eight league titles in four different countries - including three in the Premier League with the Blues - as well as two Champions Leagues, the Europa League and eight domestic cup competitions.

Asked about his future in an interview with Eleven Sports, Mourinho revealed that he is considering all options, including the possibility of managing a national side.

"I want to compete in new competitions," he said. "I think about the World Cup and the European Championships.

"For a long time I have had the desire to try out such an adventure. Right now, I see myself more at a national team than with a new club. Is Portugal the right team for me? Not necessarily."

"Winning a fifth championship in a different country or the Champions League with a third club are [also] things I'd like to do. I wouldn't do it just for that. I only go where a project convinces me.

"I want to be happy, not necessarily win, I want to be happy and I don't want to accept a proposal without being convinced of it, that's what I've always thought. That's why if [a club] told me 'today there are no conditions to win, but we want you to create the conditions to win', then I would evaluate it."

Mourinho is currently the odds-on bookmakers' favourite to take over at Bayern Munich should the German side decide to part ways with Niko Kovac.
