No sabbatical for me, I'm ready to get to work immediately: Jose Mourinho
According to a statement released by a his commercial agency CAA, following his sacking on Thursday,
“He will not be taking a sabbatical, he isn’t tired, he doesn’t need it,” said a statement from the agency which represents the 52-year-old.
“He is very positive and is already looking forward.”
Mourinho joined Chelsea for a second time when he took over at the Stamford Bridge club in June 2013.
He led them to the Premier League title and League Cup last season and was rewarded with a four-year contract in the summer.
However, Chelsea struggled this season and the club’s technical director Michael Emenalo talked of a “palpable discord between manager and players” following Mourinho’s exit.
“Jose Mourinho is pleased that he returned to Chelsea because he was able to give the fans another Premier League title, which they had not won for many years,” the statement continued.
“He is immensely proud of his eight trophies at Chelsea, and thanks the fans for all their support throughout his two spells at the club.
“During his career, Jose has sometimes chosen to leave a club, but only at Chelsea has the club decided that he should leave.”
