Mourinho waves chequered flag at MotoGP race in Portugal

Jose Mourinho waved the chequered flag at the end of the MotoGP Portuguese Grand Prix. The legendary manager has been out of the game for more than two months after his sacking from Serie A club Roma on January 16, 2024.

‘The Special One’ waves chequered flag

Jorge Martin won the race, with Mourinho waiting at the finishing line with the black and white chequered flag. It was the eighth race in the MotoGP season. You can see the moment here.

Mourinho talked to MotoGP about the sport and his interest in motor racing overall. He said: “This is my first time here. I am connected by passion and by friends. I have friends in MotoGP. I have a passion for it. I watch it regularly.”

Next steps for Mourinho

The Portuguese manager has coached eight different clubs since his first role in 2000. He was asked about his potential next steps in the game before the Grand Prix started on Sunday.

Mourinho told A Bola, “For the moment there’s zero news, zero news,” he said. “I don’t have a club, I’m free, but I want to work. Don’t worry, this summer I want to go back to work. My life is football, I can coach anywhere, I have no problems.”
