Mourinho has read "lies" about next club

Man Utd target thankful for options

Jose Mourinho has spoken of a "few lies" which he says he has read about his next managerial destination.

The Portuguese has been out of work since being sacked by Chelsea in December and has been heavily linked with replacing Louis Van Gaal in the Old Trafford hotseat.

Although the former Real Madrid manager won his third Premier League title with the west London club last season, a disastrous defence of their crown saw him axed for the second time by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

Van Gaal meanwhile has been under huge pressure over his side's dreary style of play and unimpressive results which have included a series of defeats in the Premier League, elimination from the Champions League group stage and a 2-0 Europa League first leg battering at fierce rivals Liverpool on Thursday.

Persistent rumours have linked Mourinho with replacing the Dutchman in the summer but although he admits he will be starting a new job in July, he didn't confirm where that would be.

“I was lucky enough to have good options since I left Chelsea in December,” he told BT Sport. “Yes I was lucky enough to have not just options but good options but I made a decision to wait calm in my corner, not disturbing, just waiting, reading a few lies, listen to a few lies.

“The reality is that I want to work and normally July, mid-July, new pre-season starts and somewhere I want to be there."
