Mourinho would be interested in Manchester United job

Jose Mourinho has hinted that he would be willing to takeover at Old Trafford when Sir Alex Ferguson decides to step down as Manchester United manager.

There has been growing speculation that the Scot will retire at the end of the current season and Mourinho's name keeps cropping up as a possible successor.

When asked if he would be interested in taking over at United when Fergie steps down Jose replied: "Who can say no? Nobody could say ‘no’. Manchester United belongs to a small group of clubs around the world where nobody can say ‘no’."

However, Mourinho said that he doesn't think Sir Alex will be retiring any time soon: "I don’t believe he is leaving in 2010. I think he will be the same the year after, healthy and happy. I don’t see a reason for him to quit and I hope he still goes on."
