Mourinho won't rule out England job

Ex-Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho admits he fancies the "big" England job.

Mourinho declared on Sky Sports News: "I am in Portugal. I would like to be in London with my family for a couple of days but nobody would believe the reason why I would be there - to see friends and family and do some Christmas shopping.

"So to try to stop the speculation I decided not to go and stay here. It is sunny and beautiful."

But, when asked if he could be the next England manager, Mourinho replied: "Why not?"

Off camera Mourinho said the England post was a big one and the type he was looking for but he denied he was using the Football Association in a bid to get a club job.
