Italian Sky: the Portuguese Football Association pressured Jose Mourinho to make a decision as soon as possible and allowed him to coach Roma until next summer
Sky Italia reported on December 22 that Roma are increasingly worried about the future of their manager as the Portuguese Football Association is stepping up its pursuit of Jose Mourinho.
Santos terminated his contract by mutual agreement after losing to Morocco in the World Cup. Mourinho’s contract with Roma expires in June 2024 and he has promised that he intends to complete the entire contract. However, when it comes to the opportunity to coach his own national team, it may be enough to make him reconsider.
According to Sky Sports Italia, the Portuguese Football Association is stepping up pressure on Mourinho to make a decision as soon as possible. They plan to keep him in Rome until the end of the season and appoint current Portuguese U21 coach Rui Jorge as acting coach until July next year.
Mourinho joined Roma in the summer of 2021 and immediately led the team to their first-ever Uefa trophy. Mourinho has never stayed at a club for long, having coached Chelsea and Real Madrid for three years.
