Jose Mourinho has claimed that he has already turned down three job offers from unspecified clubs since moving on from Manchester United.
The Portuguese manager was relieved of his duties at Old Trafford after two and a half years in charge last month.
Adverse Premier League results and a deteriorating dressing room atmosphere both contributed to his sacking, while results have improved noticeably at United under interim successor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Mourinho, meanwhile, has remained tight-lipped over his next destination, only stating he is looking to return to football at the "top level" when the time is right.
But he insists that his lack of regular employment on the bench - he is currently working as a television pundit - is not for want of offers.
"I’m happy with this experience. I’m going to have other experiences that normally I cannot have.
"But I know me and I know that by the end of March I am struggling a little bit with my happiness.
"I know my nature. My next move? I don’t know. It depends.
"I will analyse things. I don’t like to speak about it, but I have refused already three options.
"Because I didn’t feel it was what I want. So I’m going to be calm in this aspect.
"The more time I have the better I can prepare."
Mourinho's sudden availability has piqued possible interest in two of his former clubs, Real Madrid and Inter, who are both struggling to impress on a consistent basis in the current campaign.
