Italian media: both Brazil and Portugal want to invite Mourinho to coach
December 24-the Daily Mail quoted Italian media newspaper La Repubblica as saying that Brazil is planning to sign Mourinho as the team’s new head coach.
According to Italian media, Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti is the first choice in Brazil, but he is not willing to leave the club before his contract expires unless he is fired. It also said that Brazil had begun preliminary negotiations with Mendes on the coach of Jose Mourinho.
In addition, Corriere dello Sport reported that Portugal had also expressed interest in coaching Jose Mourinho, and last week the president of the Portuguese Football Association met with Mendes to discuss Mourinho’s current coaching plan. However, Roma do not want Mourinho to leave the club, so the latter will talk to the club for a solution, and the Post says he may seek to terminate his contract with Rome a year in advance to coach Portugal.
