Jose Mourinho was offered the chance to manage Scottish champions Celtic, ex-Chelsea striker, Chris Sutton, has revealed.
The former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager was in December relieved of his managerial position at Manchester United.
Sutton, quoted by Manchester Evening, disclosed that the Portuguese was offered an opportunity of coaching Celtic next season.
“There’s going to be a lot of managers in for it (the Celtic manager’s job),” he said.
“Mourinho was heavily linked and I’m led to believe that there was something in that in terms of there being an offer.
“But why would he take the Celtic job? I just don’t get it. I don’t know the exact terms but there was an offer.”
