Former Manchester United boss José Mourinho has revealed that he is currently learning to speak German, hinting at a future move to the Bundesliga.
Mourinho was fired from Manchester United back in December 2018, after two and a half season with the Red Devils, but is keen on returning to management this summer.
has made use of his leisure time by appearing as a pundit on beIN Sports, as well as taking in major sporting events.
In a recent interview with Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, Mourinho said: “I really miss football. I miss the adrenaline, the field, my job. Football is football.”
“Right now, I am studying German. Bundesliga? Now, I’m studying German because I miss the language. I speak English, Spanish, Portuguese, French and Italian.”
“But I do not exclude anything, not even Germany,” he added.
The 56-year old has had work experience all over Europe, with the likes of Porto, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Serie A giants Inter Milan.
Linked with job offers at Lyon and Newcastle previously, recent reports suggest that he turned down Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande.
Speaking to Sky Sports Italia back in May, the Portuguese claimed, “I have a lot of qualities and one of them is to respect other clubs and their management.”
“I have never spoken like ‘this club wanted me, they contacted me.”
“When I left Manchester United in December, I immediately took the decision I want to work from summer.”
“I hope to be back to work in July in a project I really like.”
