Jose Mourinho: Out of work, sacked Chelsea manager campaigns in Portuguese presidential election

New Delhi: Strange is the case with Jose Mourinho. He is out of work, but not certainly out of context. His newest turf is politics.
After facing the axe at his beloved Chelsea, the celebrated manager is now busy campaigning for Portuguese presidential candidate Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa.
A month after leaving Stamford Bridge, the 52-year-old is still without a job and was found campaigning for centre-right candidate Rebelo de Sousa.
In fact, the former Real Madrid manager has posted video message with his stand ahead of Sunday's election.
In one such video, he said “It’s the first time I publicly state my support for a candidate, because I think Portugal needs to make the right choice, more than ever.”
“I have a clear understanding that we need a winner, but not only a winner. We need charisma, and uniting these winning qualities and charisma, I think that’s what Portugal needs right now.
“So, without any reservation, I take this public position for the first time: I vote Marcelo and I do so because I am convinced he is the right choice for us,” he added.
