(SOUNDBITE) (English) JOSE MOURINHO SAYING: "What I have in mind is that I would like to be back in the summer, in June, for a new club, for a new pre-season.

I know exactly what I don't want, that's the reason why I had to say already to three or four different offers that I had to say 'no', and I know what I want, in terms of not a specific club but the nature of the job, the dimension of the job, I know what I want." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) JOSE MOURINHO SAYING: "And I am 'working', preparing myself for the next one.

It's not like I am on a holiday, it's not like I'm bored with nothing to do, I am preparing myself for the next one and that is something that, when you are working everyday in football with six press conferences per week, with three matches per week, with pre-match analysis, with post-match analysis, with all the problems you have on your day-by-day, sometimes you have no time to take care about yourself and now I am having this month where I think I am going to be back even better prepared." 4.

WHITE FLASH 5.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) JOSE MOURINHO SAYING: "I like daily work, I like many competitions, I like matches and I want to stay in football club level but who knows?" STORY: Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is targeting a return to club management during the close season in June and has an idea about the type of club he wants to take charge of, the Portuguese has said.

Mourinho has been out of a job since he was sacked by United in December following a dismal run of results that left the club sixth in the Premier League standings, 19 points behind league leaders Liverpool.

"What I have in mind is that I would like to be back in the summer, in June, for a new club, for a new pre-season," Mourinho told BeIN Sports.

"I know exactly what I don't want.

That's the reason why I had to say (no) already to three or four different offers.

And I know what I want, in terms of not a specific club but the nature of the job, the dimension of the job." Mourinho had said in January that he was not sure if he would manage another club in England after stints with Chelsea and United.

The 56-year-old, however, ruled out taking the reins of a national team as he prefers the day-to-day work that comes with being a club manager.

"I like daily football, I like daily work, I like many competitions, I like matches and I want to stay in football club level.

But who knows?" (Production: Annette Faydenko)
