Jose Mourinho: former man Utd and head of Chelsea sighted in Lille against Montpellier

Jose Mourinho took part in the Ligue 1 clash with Montpellier on Sunday afternoon while the former Manchester United and Chelsea manager considered his next step.

The Portuguese was fired by United in December, which triggered a revival at Old Trafford under the guidance of temporary trainer Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

And Mourinho's next job remains a mystery, but now he's starting to attend live matches, suggesting he's ready to come back.

The team of Christophe Galtier flies high in Ligue 1 with Lille, who is placing ahead of Lyon and Marseille in the race for a place in the Champions League.

Mourinho's motive for taking part in the match seems to be linked to the visit of his friend Luis Campos, who is a football consultant for the Lille scouting department.

The couple worked together with Real Madrid, where Campos was the scout leader.

Campos has previously been linked to the vacant director of the football role at Chelsea since Michael Emenalo's departure.

Mourinho also seems to have visited Galtier's team, with Kouakou Hervé Koffi posing with the Portuguese.

Mourinho has recently been seen on beIN SPORTS, filling his free time as an expert.

And after confirming that they have already received job offers, Mourinho's interest in the game remains high.
