Jose ponders England job

Jose Mourinho's personal adviser says the former FC Porto and Chelsea boss would consider becoming England manager if the Football Association approached him.
Eladio Parames has reiterated that Mourinho has had no contact with the FA, who are in the process of finding a successor for Steve McClaren who was sacked last month in the wake of the 3-2 defeat to Croatia.
It was reported over the weekend that the FA fear Mourinho would prefer to manage a club side in Spain or Italy rather than take the England job, while Fabio Capello continues to be linked with the vacancy.
"It would be an honour," Parames told the Associated Press. "He likes English football, the people, the country and the players.
"It's something he'd consider, but he's not trying to get the FA's attention. He's not waving his hands in the air but, if he's approached, he'll reply.
"If he were approached he'd consider it, discuss it, negotiate and present his own ideas.
"Jose's problem would never be money. If he's approached, invited, there will be positive and negative things for him to consider and he'll weigh up the pros and cons."
