Ex-Man Utd boss Mourinho opens door to Ligue 1 move

Former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has opened the door to a move to France.

The Portuguese was spotted taking in Lille's Ligue 1 match at home to Montpellier on Sunday.

Mourinho told beIN SPORTS, “I can imagine myself as a coach in Ligue 1.

“I am a man who has worked in four different countries, I like to know and learn other cultures. Working in a new championship would be a fantastic experience.

“For now I'm calm, I try to live better with my family and friends and I work to get the right opportunity to go back to training.

“Two to three months [without a job] is okay, afterwards it's more difficult. I hope to have the opportunity to come back stronger.

“My project is my project as a person and coach, to improve myself, to be better, to think all days about my profession, which is also a passion. But this is not the time to talk with clubs."
