Clarke: Mourinho won more trophies at Man Utd than Liverpool, Spurs

Steve Clarke expects sacked Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho to quickly return to the game.

Mourinho's former assistant does not believe the 55-year-old will be short of offers.

"I'm sure he won't be short of offers, that's for sure," Kilmarnock boss Clarke, who was Mourinho's assistant during Chelsea's league title wins in 2005 and 2006, told Sky Sports.

"He'll look at the market in the future and I'm pretty sure one of the top clubs in Europe will come calling soon and offer him another job. He's a serial winner."

Clarke said it was hard to characterise Mourinho's tenure at United as being a "failure".

"He won three trophies -- the Community Shield, the Europa League, the League Cup; so it's three trophies more than Liverpool in the same period, more than Tottenham," Clarke added.

"So was he a failure or was he not a failure? I'm not sure. He finished second last year."
