Jose Mourinho hinted at a future move to the Bundesliga, after disclosing that he is studying German.
Mourinho remains out of work following his departure from Manchester United last December.
The Portuguese spent two-and-a-half seasons in charge at Old Trafford, winning a League Cup, Community Shield and Europa League trophy during his time.
Ever since, Mourinho has stated that he is waiting for the “right project”, as he continues his longest spell away from management in over a decade
He has been linked with numerous jobs since leaving United, with Benfica, Lyon and most recently Newcastle United said to have been interested.
However, Mourinho now hinted that the Bundesliga is also very much on his radar.
Asked about his future, Mourinho told Gazzetta dello Sport: “I really miss football. I miss the adrenaline, the field, my job. Football is football.
“Right now, I am studying German. Bundesliga? Now, I’m studying German because I miss the language. I speak English, Spanish, Portuguese, French and Italian. But I do not exclude anything, not even Germany
