Jose Mourinho emerges as surprise England contender


Jose Mourinho may have changed his mind about ruling himself out of the running for the England job.

Despite strongly suggesting that his next job would be in club football, a desire to stay in England could see the Portuguese replace Roy Hodgson after the summer’s European Championships.

According to the Sunday People, via the Daily Mirrorthe former Chelsea boss has told agent Jorge Mendes that he would be open to taking over for the 2018 World Cup campaign.

Well only if Hodgson leaves after the Euros and Mourinho has not found another position by the summer.

Of course, this assumes claims in the Spanish media about Mourinho taking over at Manchester United are wide of the mark.

We’ll have to just wait and see.
