⚽ Mourinho: I wasn"t obsessed by Man Utd job ⚽

Jose Mourinho denies Chelsea were a fallback option in 2013.

Speaking with BBC Sport, Mourinho was asked to clarify whether his current post is the one job he has craved throughout his career and was pressed on suggestions that he was disappointed not to get the job after Alex Ferguson retired in the summer of 2013.

“No, I cannot say I had Manchester United on my mind, I won’t say that,” he said.

“Manchester United has a name, has a prestige, something magic in football that attracts everyone, so I think it is normal (that he wants to be United manager).”
