Jose Mourinho Holds Talks With PSG President Over Manager’s Job

Jose Mourinho has put himself in the frame for the PSG job after meeting with the club’s Qatari president.

The former Manchester United boss met Nasser Al-Khelaifi during his stint in the Gulf state as a pundit on beIN Sport.

Mourinho has been targeted by PSG on a number of occasions in the past.

PSG are romping away with Ligue 1, currently 13 points clear as they bid for a sixth title in seven seasons.

But German coach Thomas Tuchel will be under pressure if the French champions flop again in the Champions League.

PSG face Mourinho’s former side with the first leg at Old Trafford next month.

And the Portuguese hinted that he might be keen to sit down and listen to PSG if they felt Tuchel was not meeting expectations.

Mourinho said: “I know me and I know by the end of March I will be struggling a little but with my happiness. I know. I know my nature.”

The 55-year-old also backed the PSG hierarchy over their decision to ostracise want-away midfielder Adrien Rabiot, drawing an implied contrast with United’s stance over Paul Pogba when he fell out with Mourinho.

He said: “I read something very interesting. Thomas Tuchel goes to the press conference and they ask him ‘Rabiot is training with the second team’ and Tuchel answer was ‘club decision’.
