Does he need another job?
He should have been able to put enough by to get by for the rest of his life, even without the payout Utd will give him.
His ego needs the attention and the power.
There's certainly a bit of that to him, yes.
However I think this time he has been sacked and will not be able to claim (although he unquestionably will) that he leaves the club 'as a winner'. And that will hurt his pride, I'm sure.
Interesting that all the teams he's being associated with (Real, Inter etc) are clubs he's previously managed. I don't think it's any certainty that any current, top notch team are going to take the risk with him. He's damaged goods at present and appears increasingly out-of-synch with how the game has progressed.
I wonder, if the Portuguese job becomes available next summer (after the Nations League finals in Portugal) whether that might be a sound place for him to re-establish himself?
