José Mourinho Discusses Leicester City And His Future In England At Anthony Joshua's Fight

José Mourinho Discusses Leicester City And His Future In England At Anthony Joshua's Fight
By Gavan Casey Updated

There's been a lot of speculation that Jose Mourinho has been house-hunting in Cheshire in recent days, with Guillem Balagué claiming the Portuguese manager has told those close to him that a deal is "done" to take him to Old Trafford this summer.

Tonight, however, Mourinho is back in his old stomping ground of London - the O2 Arena to be exact - attending Anthony Joshua's 'world title' fight with unheralded American Charles Martin.

Asked about his future - which many see at Manchester United - Mourinho remained predictably coy, telling Sky Sports' Andy Burton:

Reports are reports. I have respect for Mr Van Gaal...but it's not about him, I've been linked with different jobs.

[Louis Van Gaal] is my friend - I worked with him for a few years.

I am always linked with jobs. One job, for sure, I want to get, because I want to work. But in this moment I can promise you I do not have a contract with any club. My first choice is stay in England

On Leicester City's unprecedented success, the 53-year-old said with a smirk:

When Prince William says he wants Leicester to win (the title), who am I to say (anything)?

Mourinho, whilst admiring the sheer size of Joshua - whom many regard to be one of the greatest specimen in the history of heavyweight boxing - interestingly cites the respect between the heavyweight duo in the lead-up to their IBF scrap as the most enjoyable aspect of the promotion.

We say 'interestingly', of course, due to Mourinho's occasionally relaxed approach to the concept during his managerial career.

Mourinho is a long-time fan of the former Olympic gold medallist, and spent some time with the new IBF champ after the fight.
