Jose Mourinho offered the Syrian national team job

Callum Davis

Jose Mourinho's enforced hiatus from football management could be about to come to a welcome end; in a very unwelcoming location.

The Special One has been out of a job since being sacked as Chelsea manager in December this year, and has admitted he is keen to get back into football.

"The reality is I like football so much, I miss football, and when I have the chance to be back I will come back.”

Since receiving his marching orders from Stamford Bridge for the second time in his career, the former Real Madrid manager has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United.

However if Ed Woodward is hopeful of securing the services of the Portuguese he must now move fast as Mourinho has been approached with one firm job offer.

With rumours continuing to abound that Mourinho has agreed a deal in principle to takeover from Louis van Gaal next season, the Syrian Football Federation have made a daring play to hijack the deal.

The Syrian national football team have written a letter to Mourinho's management company, Gestifute, posting the letter to their Facebook page.

The Syrian FA explained that after a meeting between the heads of the Syrian national team, it was agreed that negotiations would start with Jose Mourinho's agent, Jorge Mendes.

The letter reads: "We are getting in touch to make you aware of our interest in making an official offer to sign Jose Mourinho as the new manager of the Syrian national team.

"The team has qualified for the third phase of the Asian qualifying competition for the World Cup in Russia in 2018.

"We would like you to know that we are open to negotiate with you on the conditions required to sign Mourinho after both sides come to an agreement."

The bizarre offer comes just a few months after Mourinho was hand-picked as the number one managerial target for the 'worst team in the world.'

It's unclear whether Jose Mourinho will take up the once in a lifetime opportunity to work in war-torn Damascus, or hold out for a shot at the Manchester United job.
