Jose Mourinho breaks silence on next job after being sacked by Roma

Jose Mourinho is seen on the grid prior to the F1 Grand Prix of Saudi Arabia at Jeddah Corniche Circuit on March 09, 2024 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. 

Jose Mourinho is planning a return to management in the summer, just months after parting ways with AS Roma.

Mourinho spent over two years with the Italian capital outfit, leading them to win the Europa Conference League title and securing a place in the Europa League final. Since leaving Roma, rumours have linked him to many roles including clubs in Saudi Arabia, his previous club Chelsea, and also Newcastle.

While he hasn't decided where his next adventure lies, he has expressed his desire to return to work by next season. When asked at the Moto GP event in Portimao, Portugal, about any offers, he replied: "Zero, zero. I don't have a club, I'm free. But I want to work, in the summer I want to work."

There's even speculation that Mourinho might return to Portugal, the country where he became famous after a successful spell at Porto before his move to Chelsea in 2004, reports the Mirror. When questioned about returning to manage in Portugal, Mourinho simply said, "Why? Never say no, especially in football. My life is football, I can train anywhere, I have no problems."

Mourinho’s update arrives a few days after Ex-Roma General Manager Tiago Pinto lifted the lid on the decision to sack the former Chelsea and Tottenham boss, claiming that the Portuguese’s exit was his toughest call at the Stadio Olimpico.

Speaking about the situation to Sky Sports, Pinto said: "Mourinho's dismissal? That was a very difficult day for everyone. I'm still young, I don't know if older sports directors manage such situations differently. I die the moment a coach has to be fired. The emotions are too high, it was a collaboration of two and a half years coming to an end."

Meanwhile, Mourinho had a few words on his mind, telling Rio Ferdinand a couple months after he exited Roma: "I'll be back. I won't be there for the final stages of the season, not because I've been eliminated before, but because I've been "eliminated" by someone who has little knowledge of football."

Mourinho was replaced in the dugout by the club's iconic former midfielder Daniele De Rossi, who has so far enjoyed nine wins from his 13 matches. Currently, Roma are sitting happy at fifth in Serie A, just outside the Champions League spots. The club were ninth when Mourinho's exit was confirmed.
