Jose Mourinho is seeking a managerial return in France next season according to L’Equipe, who claim he has made himself available to two clubs there.

The former Chelsea and Manchester United boss has been out of work since being sacked by the Old Trafford club in December last year, but is desperate to be back in the dugout for the start of the 2019/20 season.

And he has reportedly made it known to both Lyon and Monaco that he wishes to take over at either club, and take his managerial experience into a fifth European league.

Mourinho has won league titles in Portugal, England, Italy and Spain, and r ecently spoke about how he wanted “a fifth league” in his career.

“I have in mind to win a fifth league and a new Champions League in a third club,” Mourinho told Canal+ .

In addition, Mourinho told beIN Sports about his desire to manage in France after he attended a Lille vs Montpellier match last month.

“I can imagine myself as a coach in Ligue 1,” he said.

“I am a man who has worked in four different countries. I like to know other cultures. Working in a new championship would be a fantastic experience.

“For now I’m calm, I try to live better with my family and friends and I work calmly to hope for the opportunity to go back to football.”

While Monaco – who have pulled clear of relegation trouble in recent weeks – are now back under the tutelage of Leonardo Jardim following the sacking of Thierry Henry.
