After spending his time since fulfilling media duties, Mourinho admits he is ready to find a new club this summer.
Former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is targeting a return to management in June
He is ready to find a new club and would not rule out making a move to Ligue 1 in France
‘I would like to be back in the summer in June for a new club and a new pre-season,’ he told BeIn Sports.
‘I know exactly what I don’t want. I know what I want, in terms of not the specific club but the nature of the job, the dimension of the job.’
The former Chelsea boss says he misses ‘nothing at all’ but is ‘not on holiday or bored with nothing to do’.
‘I am working, preparing myself for the next one,’ he added.

And he refused to rule out Ligue 1 as a potential destination for his route back into football.
‘It is difficult to say. If I said no (I am not considering it), I would not be being honest with you. If I say yes, you are going to start to speculate on the clubs that might interest me’, he said when asked about a move to France by AFP.
Mourinho was linked with a return to former club Real Madrid before they re-appointed Zinedine Zidane earlier this month.
