Mourinho in Singapore for Peter Lim Scholarship event at Northlight School

SINGAPORE –¬†Jose Mourinho made his first public comments on being linked with the Manchester United coaching job.

As a special guest at the Peter Lim Scholarship event held at Northlight School on Wednesday, the Portuguese was non-committal about links to Manchester United, even as he answered questions with tongue firmly in cheek.

He quipped: “I read so many things, one day says yes, another day says no, one other day says I go to China, another day I go to Italy…(now that) I’m here, probably you are saying that I go to Singapore national team.

“It’s a million-dollar question that nobody knows. I’m not worried about it. I’m relaxed, wait and see what happens.”

The self-proclaimed “special one” also had a light-hearted viewpoint on his second ill-fated tenure with the Blues. “I’m still the English champion, but I have no job. So it’s a funny career.”

The special one is in town at Northlight School. He is here for the Peter Lim Scholarship.

Though stopping short of confirming his immediate future, he hinted that he could soon be back in management.

He said: “(Nothing is) concrete. I miss football yes, and if I have to return tomorrow, I return tomorrow.

“But I always feel that it’s better to wait, not to rush…starting the next season with a new club and project is probably the best thing for me.”
