FA deny Mourinho interview reports

The Football Association today denied that Jose Mourinho has been interviewed for the post of England manager.

It was reported in Friday's newspapers that Mourinho had flown into Farnborough airport, Hampshire, by private jet to meet with the FA.

The FA's director of communication, Adrian Bevington, stated that the FA was yet to interview any of the prospective candidates for the job. He added that it had not yet drawn up a formal shortlist, as has been widely reported.

"I can't answer what Jose Mourinho's diary arrangements are but what I can say is he is certainly not flying in to meet with the FA today," said Bevington.

"We have got no plans to meet with Jose Mourinho today to discuss the England job. That is not on the agenda.

"I can't comment what Jose Mourinho's travel arrangements are in his private life, that is another issue in itself and one for Jose and his private advisors, in the same way that I wouldn't be able to comment about any other potential manager."
