Ex-Man Utd boss Mourinho open to international job other than Portugal

Jose Mourinho says he's open to trying his hand at international management.

And the 56-year-old, who was sacked by Manchester United in December, added that he would be opening to managing countries other than his native Portugal.

"I want to compete in new competitions," he told Eleven Sports in June.

"I think about the World Cup and the European Championships. For a long time I have had the desire to try out such an adventure. Right now, I see myself more at a national team than with a new club.

"Is Portugal the right team for me? Not necessarily."
