Manchester United Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho waiting for Premier League job after rejecting Lyon – RMC

Which Premier League club could Mourinho join?

Former Manchester United and Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly waiting for a Premier League job, after rejecting the chance to take over at Lyon.

Mourinho has been out of a job since being sacked by United at the back end of 2018.

After a poor run of results, the Portuguese manager was dismissed following defeat against Liverpool.

Since then, Mourinho has mainly remained in the shadows, appearing most notably as a pundit on Sky Sports.

However, he has been linked with a couple of jobs.

Most notably, he was recently tipped for the Tottenham job if Mauricio Pochettino was sacked.

According to reports, the Spurs job appeals to Mourinho. 

Now, it’s been suggested that Mourinho is holding out for a Premier League job.

Everton? Tottenham? Arsenal?

According to RMC, as cited by Get France Football News, Jose Mourinho was contacted by Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas over the club’s vacant managerial position.

But, it’s claimed: ‘The Portuguese tactician has turned down the opportunity.’

The report continues by explaining that contact was made yesterday, but Aulas’ approach was turned down for a specific reason.

Mourinho made ‘clear that he would like to take up a position soon notably in England, where his family is currently living.’

The big question is which Premier League club could he join?

Well, as mentioned earlier, Mourinho is reportedly attracted to the idea of Tottenham.

Mauricio Pochettino is firmly under pressure, and could either leave or be sacked at the end of the season.

Marco Silva is also under pressure at Everton, and the Toffees could hypothetically make a move for Mourinho.

Unai Emery, while not in as bad of a position as Silva, is also somewhat under pressure.
