Tim Sherwood name checks Arsenal when discussing Jose Mourinho’s next job

Tim Sherwood has told Stadium Astro that he believes Jose Mourinho will not be seen in the Premier League again after he was sacked by Tottenham Hotspur on Monday – even discussing whether Arsenal could land the Portuguese manager in the future.

Mourinho was given his marching orders on Monday as Tottenham failed to beat Everton, drawing 2-2. The North London club sit five points off the top four behind West Ham – but are way down in seventh, with plenty of clubs chasing the top four slots.

The ‘Special One’ has now managed Chelsea twice, Manchester United and now Tottenham in the Premier League – but at 58, he still has plenty of years in football management. A return to Italy, Spain or Portugal could be on the cards for the gaffer.

Ex-Tottenham boss Sherwood believes Mourinho will not manage in the Premier League again – and suggested international management for the ex-Real Madrid boss. Sherwood even name checked Arsenal when making his point about Mourinho.

“Jose Mourinho has left a fantastic legacy in the Premier League, I think we have seen the end of him. Where is he going to go now? He only manages big football clubs. It is impossible for him to go to Arsenal,” Sherwood said on Stadium Astro.

“I don’t think there is a club left for him to manage [in the Premier League] who would want to take Jose Mourinho. I think he will have another job in him, but it will be a national team manager.”

TBR’s view – Mourinho will surely manage Portugal next?

Mourinho has now spent more than 20 years in management and taken charge of nine top-tier sides – including Inter Milan, Real Madrid, Porto and Chelsea on two occasions. His club management career is not over.

While Sherwood is probably right, Mourinho could easily return to Italy and manage clubs like AC Milan, Roma, Napoli for example. Spanish sides could be interested, while Mourinho has not even embarked on Germany or France.

A return to Portugal might be on the cards – either at a club or as an international manager. Portugal is probably his best bet.
