Former Manchester United Manager Jose Mourinho 'Offered Celtic Job'

Former Manchester United Manager Jose Mourinho 'Offered Celtic Job'

José Mourinho has emerged as one of the odds-on favourites to become the next Celtic manager after a well-known bookmaker slashed the odds on him heading to Celtic Park.

Th self-proclaimed 'Special One' has been out of management since Manchester United axed him back in December, but he has already claimed that he has been offered the opportunity to return to management.

Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has now revealed that the Scottish Premier League side had approached Mourinho about the role.

"It's so tough to stand here and say who will be the next Celtic manager because it's a big job," he said.

"There's going to be a lot of managers in for it.

"Mourinho was heavily linked and I'm led to believe that there was something in that in terms of there being an offer.

"But why would he take the Celtic job? I just don't get it.

"I don't know the exact terms but there was an offer."

While it's still unclear where the 56-year-old Portuguese manager sees his future, Paddy Power believes that the 'The Hoops' are interested in appointing him as their next head coach.

In fact, the Irish bookmaker has slashed the odds on the former Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Chelsea boss to become Celtic manager from 66/1 to 14/1.

"José Mourinho and Celtic may not seem like a natural partnership, but the Bhoys do have recent experience in coaches with humongous egos," a Paddy Power spokesperson said.

"And, actually, both parties have pretty strong links with Champions League success in Portugal.

"It could be viewed as an odd move for Mourinho but, having linked himself with the jobs at PSG and Bayern, Celtic would fit with [the] apparent approach of targeting one-club leagues."

"Where could José Mourinho go? Sincerely, OM. If he has the profile? I think that today at OM, it needs [an] electroshock," he said (via Tribal Football).

"When we hear that the coach [Rudi Garcia] could leave today in Italy, for me there is no smoke without fire.

"Mourinho, it's been three or four times that we see him in the stands [Ligue 1] and I think it's not trivial.

"If we saw him arriving in Ligue 1 next year, I would find it great. For Ligue 1, for OM, for the standing, it would give to the championship. José Mourinho at OM, with the network he has, the players he could bring, it would be just great."

So, which club will Mourinho manage next?
