Jose Mourinho has not been employed since he was fired as Manchester United manager in December.

The Portuguese has been linked with a number of roles since then but one position he is reportedly set not to get is the Juventus role.

The Serie A champions are looking for a new coach after it was confirmed that Massimiliano Allegri will be leaving the position after the Turin club's final game of the season on Sunday against Sampdoria.

But a report from Sky Sports claims that despite Cristiano Ronaldo, the side's top scorer, backing him, that Mourinho will not be sought for the job.

National team jobs, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain are the other jobs that Mourinho has been associated with.
