Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is ready to return to work.

He told The Times: "I have lived for the first time for many years in my country, in my city, with my family.

"I had time to do things that I don't have when I'm working. But now it's enough. I will be somewhere next season. I've not agreed anything but it's a good time for me for many reasons. I will come back with the same motivation as always.

"I had some good options this month.

"Some good clubs and some good countries. But I decided to wait until the beginning of next season. That is right for me."
