The Portuguese tactician is being linked with a departure from the Santiago Bernabeu and although there is talk of the possibility of heading back to the Premier League or to France, Flores indicated that the UAE Pro-League could also be an option.
“Sure, I can see it perfectly. Jose is a person who is open to the world of football. He loves the work and I’m sure he is open in the future to come here. He knows that the UAE football will grow in the next few years,” the former Valencia and Madrid defender told reporters.
“I was having lunch with Mourinho. I was hanging out with Mourinho and (agent) Jorge Mendes. For me it was important because we were talking about football, about his troubles in Spain and how it is different in Spain.
“He was asking me about the UAE league, what the situation is here. It was all very friendly. He told me that as an alternative, the UAE is perfect. Europe is the best option, but it is an alternative because it is a nice place and the UAE have the intention to grow in the future.
“He said 'Quique, you are very happy here, I can see it in your face.' He was interested to know about the UAE players and the UAE stars.”
