​Spurs boss Mourinho: I don't imagine myself at Bayern Munich

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho says that he cannot imagine himself managing Bayern Munich.

When the German champions sacked Niko Kovac earlier this season, Mourinho was suggested as a possible replacement.

The Portuguese eventually took the Spurs job after Mauricio Pochettino was fired.

And he does not see himself as being drawn to the Bayern job.

"The motivation was to learn. I try to learn all time and was not working for a few months. Curiosity and culture. I would love to be able to answer in German which I cannot at this moment," said Mourinho to reporters ahead of Spurs' Champions League clash against Bayern in midweek.

"But I would love to. It was not related to jobs as you can probably think and you wrote at the time but not at all.

"But I don't imagine myself in Bayern. For one reason. I'm so happy with my job I don't look to the next step. I will leave Tottenham one day when Mr Levy eventually and the supporters and players want me to leave. I don't think t leave at all. That only reason."
