After being sacked by Manchester United three months ago, former Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has expressed his willingness to return to the world of coaching, and boldly claimed he has "been used to winning every year since 2003".
The Portuguese tactician was relieved of his duties as United coach in December 2018 following a string of poor results. However, many expect him to return to management soon, especially with Mourinho recently hinting at a move to Ligue 1, where he has never coached before.
When asked about his current state of mind and aspirations for the future, the two-time UEFA Champions League-winning coach revealed that he is in a good space despite an underwhelming end to his time with the Red Devils.
"I'm the same as always, I've been used to winning every year since 2003," he was quoted as saying by Marca.
"This winning rhythm was only interrupted in the last 18 months. It's not even 18 months since (he won) the Europa League with Manchester United, and now I want to return more than ever. I'm in great shape and as motivated as when I first started.
"It's a period in my life where I'm careful with what I'm seeing and what I read. Now I look around me, I study, and my television work is going well. I'm at peace, but at the same time I have the incredible urge to return."
Mourinho also weighed in on this season's edition of the Champions League and some of the teams who are left in the competition.
"We're only at the last 16 stage, it's early to be speaking about favourites. From the quarter-finals, it will be clear," he added.
"Each team has a 12.5% chance of winning. One of Juventus and Atletico Madrid will be out soon, and another between Bayern Munich and Liverpool.
"But I'm convinced that we will see very good and even quarter-finals."
