No Newcastle Move For Jose Mourinho

It appears that Jose Mourinho will not be moving to Newcastle to replace Rafa Benitez.

The former Chelsea and Manchester United boss says he does not want to manage a club who would be happy finishing ninth.

Mourinho, who has been out of work since December, had been linked with the post with reports of a takeover by Dubai-based billionaire Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Nehayan.

Mourinho told The Coaches’ Voice: “The only thing that I know is what I don’t want: I am quite pathological in the sense of I have to play to win.

“Then, if I don’t win, then that’s my problem and the players and the club and the structure but I need a project where the feeling is I play to win.

“If somebody gives me a wonderful 10-year contract and the objective of the team is to stay in the first half of the table and if you finish seventh, eighth or ninth, it’s perfect, then that’s not for me. That’s my nature.”
