Where Jose Mourinho should really go

In the aftermath of Real Madrid’s exit from the Champions League at the hands of Borussia Dortmund there was a wave of speculation as to where Jose Mourinho would be heading next.

A quick look over comment sections told me that Chelsea fans were literally creaming themselves over the possibility that he might return to Stamford Bridge as it is somewhere that he feels loved.

Frankly, I’m not too fussed where he ends up; if it is a return to England, fine, or if decides that he is going to try out the Bundesliga for size then great for him.

If he fancies a challenge, though, why doesn’t he try being in charge of a lower league team? That would be a true test of his managerial skills, surely? He wouldn’t have a Didier Drogba or Cristiano Ronaldo to fall back on when the going gets tough and he would have to make do with modest resources.

I think I have just the club for the ‘Special One’, too, and that club is Leyton Orient. With this choice I have taken into consideration that Mourinho clearly enjoys working in a big city and with the Orient located in the east end of the capital he will be able to experience a vast array of different cultures.

The League One team he will be taking charge of isn’t too shabby either with pacy winger Dean Cox offering a threat down the right hand side and with striker Dan Mooney he has a proven goal scorer ready to excel himself to the next level.

If Mourinho really wants to justify his moniker than lets see him take the mighty Orient all the way to the Premiership. If he can pull off that feat there will be no denying that he is the greatest manager to have ever graced the sport.
