​Mourinho eyeing next job after Tottenham sacking: No need to recharge batteries

Former Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is ready for his next challenge.

The Portuguese was dismissed from his position at the North London club on Monday after a run of poor results in all competitions.

Spurs are out of the Europa League and look unlikely to finish in the top four in the Premier League.

They do have a Carabao Cup final against Manchester City on Sunday, which Mourinho was hoping to see the team through.

Mourinho was pictured returning to his home in London on Monday with his belongings, when a Sky Sports reporter spoke with him.

Asked if he had anything to say, Mourinho said, per the Metro: "No, no. Thanks so much. I'm not going to speak.

"You know me, you know that I'm not going to say anything."

Asked if he needed a break after the sacking, the Portuguese added: "No. No need. No need [for] breaks and no need for [recharging] batteries."

He finished by saying: "I'm always in football."
