Ex-Manchester United boss Mourinho: I would like to manage in France

Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has said he would like to coach in France one day.

The Portuguese manager, who has been out of a job since being sacked by United in December, was in the stands at the Pierre Mauroy stadium for Sunday's Ligue 1 game between Lille and Montpellier that ended in a goalless draw.

Mourinho has guided teams in Portugal, Spain, Italy and England and won a combined 25 trophies.

"I see myself coaching in France one day," he said, as reported in Portuguese newspaper Record. "I'm a man that has worked in four different countries and that likes other cultures.

"I like to learn a lot and to work in a different league would be a fantastic experience."

Mundo Deportivo report Mourinho is tracking players he may sign in the future and attended Sunday's game to watch Lille striker Nicolas Pepe in action.

Mourinho has said he is making the most of his time off.

"Right now, I'm calm," the 56-year-old said. "I'm trying to take advantage of being with my family and my friends.

"Soon enough, another opportunity in football will come my way."

As well as his three Premier League trophies with Chelsea, Mourinho led Real Madrid to the Spanish title in 2012, and guided Porto and Inter Milan to Champions League victories in 2004 and 2010 respectively -- as well as domestic championships.

He won the EFL Cup, Community Shield and Europa League in his two-and-a-half seasons at Old Trafford.
