Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has admitted he misses football and isn’t happy enough to enjoy his break from football.

Mourinho has been without a job after he was sacked by Manchester United in December. The Portuguese has turned down offers from Benfica and the Chinese Super League because he wants his next job to be in one of Europe’s top five leagues.

Mourinho told Sky Sports News: “This is basically the first time I have time to think, the first time I am in Setubal at the end of July or beginning of August in more than 20 years.

“I have some time to think, to rethink, to analyse and what I feel is exactly that ‘Ze’ [Mourinho nickname as a boy] is full of fire!

“My friends tell me ‘enjoy your time, enjoy your July, enjoy your August, enjoy what you never had’. Honestly, I can’t enjoy. I am not happy enough to enjoy.

“I miss my football, I have the fire, I have a compromise with myself, with people that love me, with so many fans that I have around the world, so many people that I inspired.

“Ze has to be Ze and Ze until the last day, but I don’t see the last day because my next move will be like the start!

“I don’t feel it’s just one more year in accumulation of how many years I’ve worked, how many titles I’ve won. That is history, that is the museum!

“My future will start in my next move and, as I was saying, it looks a little bit ridiculous with so many beautiful things around me and so many things I didn’t [have] for so many years, but I can’t really enjoy my free time.”
