Coach Jose Mourinho is said to have considered his future at the end of the season in the context of AS Roma’s poor results in Serie A.
Teleradiostereo reported that right after the match AS Roma lost 1-3 to Atalanta in the 31st round of Serie A, the “Special One” had a meeting with Jorge Mendes right in the Italian capital to discuss the future. The Portuguese strategist has a contract with Roma until June 2024, but he is likely to leave at the end of the season if the Italian capital club has an unexpected result.
The disastrous defeat against Atalanta over the weekend made Roma fall out of the top 4 of Serie A and faced many disadvantages in the race to win tickets to the Champions League next season. Roma have the same 56 points as AC Milan, who are in 4th place, but have a poor head-to-head record. In the next round, Mourinho and his students will face the red-black striped representative of Milan.
If Roma cannot reach the top 4 of Serie A 2022/23, coach Mourinho is forced to help the Italian capital team win the Europa League if they want to have a successful season. Roma will play the first leg of this season’s Europa League semi-final against Bayer Leverkusen at dawn on May 12 (Hanoi time). Mourinho’s future at Roma will only be decided after this season ends.
Gazetta revealed that the “Special One” could leave Roma if the team failed to win the right to return to the Champions League playing field next season. Besides, the Portuguese captain also received a lot of attention from other big clubs in Europe. PSG can recruit Mourinho in the near future. PSG’s Qatari owners are not satisfied with coach Christophe Galtier and are ready to fire the French strategist.
Mourinho is the name that has been approached many times by PSG in the past. PSG sporting director Luis Campos has a close relationship with Mourinho and sees him as the number one candidate to replace manager Galtier.
