Mourinho was sent to Spartak, and he chose Roma! Special returns to Italy
At Inter, the Portuguese has gone through one of the best stages of his career.
Jose Mourinho, fired a little over two weeks ago from Tottenham, has already found a new job. And this is not about “Spartak”, where he was wooed Roman Pavlyuchenko and Egor Titovand also the former president of the club Andrey Chervichenko… From the new season, the 58-year-old coach will return to Italy: he headed Roma.
Spartak needs Mourinho. Money still profits – but show-off. ” Column Chervichenko
Jose ruled out Bundesliga and Ligue 1, but hinted at Serie A
In mid-April, Tottenham dismissed Mourinho after a series of poor results. But less than a week later, journalists began to ask the Portuguese about where he would continue his career. Mourinho himself made it clear that he was not going to go to the Bundesliga or Ligue 1.
Mourinho fired from Tottenham. He only lasted a year and a half
“In Germany or France, your destiny will be immediately predetermined if you move to Club A – Bayern – or Club B – PSG. In England, the competition is at the highest level, and this is what attracts me. It’s about pressure, I want it. I would always prefer pressure. I refuse to go to the championship, where there is no pressure, “- quoted the Portuguese Daily Mail.
Then Osobny hinted that he was not against heading one of Inter’s competitors in Serie A.
“I won everything with Inter. There is a special affection. But if one day I have to go to Italy and coach a rival club, I won’t think twice. I have a professional view of things. I feel good with myself, ”said Jose.
Why Mourinho ended up in Roma
The Italian club has already announced that from the new season, Mourinho will replace Paulo Fonseca as head coach. Jose signed a three-year contract with Roma and explained why he chose the Romans.
“Thanks to the Fridkin family for choosing me as the leader of this great team, for becoming a part of their vision for the future of the club. After meeting with the owner and Tiago Pinto, I immediately understood the seriousness of Roma’s ambitions. Such ambition and drive have always motivated me. Together we want to build a successful project in the coming years.
The incredible passion of Roma fans convinced me to take this job and I can’t wait to start next season. Until then, I wish Paulo Fonseca all the best. Go ahead, Roma! ” – quotes the words of Mourinho, the press service of the Romans.
According to the Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Jose’s decision was influenced by the fact that he really wanted to return to Italy. In addition, the choice in favor of the Portuguese was made by his compatriot – Roma general director Thiago Pinto. He is called a friend of Jorge Mendes (Mourinho’s agent).
Obviously, the leadership of the “wolves” is dissatisfied with the unsuccessful result of the first semifinal match of the Europa League against Manchester United (2: 6) and the current seventh place in Serie A. Fonseca did not fulfill the task – to get into the Champions League. Mourinho’s return to Italy will certainly draw more attention to Roma next season.
Where are the heroes of the legendary “Inter” Mourinho now? 11 years ago they had no equal in Europe
Jose has already worked in Serie A with Inter Milan. He won two league titles, the Cup and the Super Cup of the country, and also won the Champions League. In the summer, the Portuguese will be an expert at the British sports radio station TalkSPORT for Euro 2020, and after the end of the tournament he will start coaching Roma. Thanks to Mourinho’s figure, more will be said about the Italian championship. At the very least, discuss his fiery press conferences.
But it is quite possible that Roma and Mourinho will join the fight for the Scudetto.
