Jose Mourinho says he has not seen Manchester United's Champions League defeat by Paris Saint-Germain because he is too familiar with the players.
United faced the Ligue 1 giants on Tuesday in their first European game since Mourinho was sacked and replaced by provisional boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Norwegian has played a series of 10 wins and a draw of his 11 reigning matches in all competitions, but he tasted defeat for the first time as Old Trafford boss when his team was defeated 2 -0 thanks to the strikes by Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe.
This left Manchester to face a huge uphill effort in the return leg in France next month, but Mourinho is already on the Channel side.
The Portuguese was spotted for Lille's Ligue 1 game against Montpellier on Sunday, and was asked what he thought of the PSG's victory after the game.
"No, I did not watch," said Mourinho to beIN SPORTS.
"I watch Manchester United games from time to time, but I prefer to watch other leagues: in the Premier League, I know every player."
Mourinho was then asked if he would like to train in France one day, and gave a positive answer.
"I can imagine myself as a coach in Ligue 1," he said.
"I am a man who has worked in four different countries, I like to know and learn about other cultures and working in a new championship would be a fantastic experience.
"For now I'm quiet, I try to live better with my family and friends and work to have the right opportunity to return to training.
"From two to three months [without a job] okay, after it's harder. I hope to have the opportunity to come back stronger.
"My project is my project as a person and coach, to improve myself, to be better, to think every day of my profession, which is also a passion, but it is not the time to talk with the clubs".
