Jose Mourinho is one of the candidates to become the coach of the Portuguese national team to replace Fernando Santos. Although Mourinho has ignored questions about this issue from the media, many sources confirm that the former Chelsea captain is very interested in the job at the European Selecao.
Corriere dello Sport share Jorge Mendes met with federation president Fernando Soares Gomes da Silva on Thursday to discuss Mourinho’s current plans. The two-time Champions League winner has the desire to lead Roma and Portugal at the same time. However, the federation immediately refused, forcing the ‘Special Person’ to think of another option.
Mourinho will talk to Roma bosses to find a solution. He is likely to request a release of contract with the club a year early, ie in the summer of 2023, to lead the Portuguese team.. According to the Italian press, Mourinho believes in the Portuguese project and wants to dedicate himself to the national team.
The task of leading Portugal to EURO 2024 and the 2026 World Cup is stimulating Mourinho and his associates. With the current circulating information, Mourinho can become the coach of Portugal once the 2022/23 season ends.
