Jose Mourinho Tears Up After Admitting How Much He Misses Football
An emotional Jose Mourinho teared up after he confessed how much he misses football since he was axed at Manchester United.
The Portuguese manager, 56, has been out of management since last December and has opened up about his time away from the managerial dugout.
Speaking to Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, Mourinho fought hard to hold back the tears as he spoke candidly about the void in his life since his sacking at Old Trafford.
"The first moment I went into professional football I felt a click," he said.
"Since then it's been serious stuff. It's been serious stuff until now. Non-stop.
"Now that it's stopped, instead of enjoying it, I can't really enjoy it, I miss it."
