AS Roma’s start to the 2023-24 season was not as expected, causing Jose Mourinho to receive a lot of criticism from aggressive tifosi, even calling on Roma’s board to fire the 60-year-old strategist. Bookmakers also reduced the odds of “The Special One” not staying at Olimpico until the end of the season.
Jose Mourinho’s contract with AS Roma will expire after this season, and according to Sky Sports Italia, no renewal negotiations are taking place. Therefore, Mourinho’s farewell to the Giallorossi is considered inevitable next summer.
“There are no negotiations going on, and there never have been. Therefore, they will part ways at the end of the agreement in June,” journalist Gianluca Di Marzio confirmed that Mourinho will leave after 3 years at Stadio Olimpico.
Saying goodbye to Italy, the former coach of Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester United will likely choose the Middle East as his next stop. According to GOAL, an ambitious club in the Middle East has sent an offer to Mourinho with a 2-year contract worth 104 million pounds.
The Portuguese strategist may ‘nod’, because he once affirmed that he will venture to Arabia in the future: “I am focusing on Roma and I will give my all until my last day.” here. No one knows the future but I am sure that one day I will coach in Saudi Arabia. I don’t know when, but I’m pretty sure that’s something I’ll definitely do.”
