Jose Mourinho: he is back in business
Yes, he is back in business and has been appointed Roma manager from the start of next season. Mourinho is still young (58) and ready to fight for more honours and will replace fellow Portuguese Paulo Fonseca, who Roma announced earlier on Tuesday would leave at the end of the season.
Mourinho, who was sacked by Levy, has signed a three-year deal with the three-time Serie A winners.
“The incredible passion of the Roma fans convinced me to accept the job, and I cannot wait to start next season,” said Mourinho.
“Thank you to the Friedkin family for choosing me to lead this great club. After meetings with the ownership and Tiago Pinto, I immediately understood the full extent of their ambitions. It is the same ambition and drive that has always motivated me, and together, we want to build a winning project,” added Mourinho, who has also managed Inter Milan, Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid outside his homeland. Spurs are the only club he wasn’t allowed to win trophies for, because of Levy’s tight-fisted control (he wasn’t given the proper funds to challenge for trophies).
Mourinho was dismissed after 17 months in charge of our poor second half of the season in which we had slipped from the top of the table to outside the European places. This season he had 10 league defeats in a single campaign for the first time in his managerial career.
I bet his biggest regret was taking the managers job under Levy’s beady eyes. A lesson (or warning) for all potential managers that wish to tread on Levy’s boards.
