Mourinho makes appearance at Spurs’ new stadium in first return to dugout since Man Utd sacking


JOSE MOURINHO has returned to the managerial hot seat for the first time since being sacked by Man United.

The former Red Devils boss, who was sacked in December, was acting as a No2 for Inter Milan in a Legends game at Tottenham’s new stadium.

Mourinho, 56, was helping Francesco Toldo lead an Inter team including Juan Sebastian Veron, Javier Zanetti and Laurent Blanc.

The self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ has been working as a pundit for the past three months since his dismissal at Old Trafford.

He has been linked with a return to Inter, the Italian club he led to a shock Treble in 2010.

Mourinho managed Inter from 2008 to 2010 in what was one of the most successful periods in his career as a coach.

Last month he told La Gazzetta dello Sport: “I want a club similar to my Inter side, a thrilling team.

“Quality has been improving in Italy.


“Big sides try to put Juventus’ supremacy under threat. Serie A will be enjoyable again very soon”.

“Inter return? I don’t want to answer this now.

“But for the future, I want a club where there is complete empathy and where there are people happy to work, in Milan, I had all this.”

Mourinho is one of the first coaches to take in Tottenham’s state-of-the-art 62,000-seater stadium.

Robbie Keane captained the Tottenham Legends, and was joined by Rafael van der Vaart, Darren Anderton and Jurgen Klinsmann in the home side.
