Six weeks after he was sacked by Chelsea, Jose Mourinho is still without a job.

That is despite near-constant speculation that the Portuguese boss would take over from his former mentor in Louis van Gaal at Manchester United. 

With the Red Devils playing boring football and struggling under the Dutchman, United fans have made it clear that they no longer see Van Gaal as the man to lead the club.

Over the course of six weeks, a six-page 'love letter' has been sent to Old Trafford and Van Gaal is said to have offered his resignation to the United board. 

Whatever the truth, it's been clear for a long time that the Portuguese is desperate to manage at Manchester United and has long seen the job as a dream role.

But despite that private desire, Mourinho has said nothing publicly, out of respect for his friend Van Gaal.

Arriving at Wembley Stadium this afternoon to back Uefa general secretary Gianni Infantino in his bid for Fifa president, Mourinho was asked about the job.

His response said it all.

Mourinho, also asked about Pep Guardiola and Manchester City, didn't say a word, instead shaking his head in disgust at the reporter.
