This will definitely be very interesting.
Next season, José Mourinho, probably the most expressive of football coaches, will lead one of Italy’s most enthusiastic fans of the Roma Club.
The Portuguese coach said in a surprising announcement from Rome on Tuesday: “The incredible enthusiasm of the fans made me accept this position and I am impatient with the start of next season.”
Mourinho’s task will be to challenge Inter Milan-the fiery Serie A champion-more than a decade ago, he led the Italian team to an unforgettable triple crown.
Club President Dan Friedkin and Vice President Ryan Friedkin said: “We are very happy and glad to welcome Mourinho to the Roma family.” “He is a champion and has won all levels. Trophy and will bring extraordinary leadership and experience to our ambitious projects.”
After declaring himself “special” after joining Chelsea in 2004, one of Mourinho’s most memorable oral darts on Italian bikes was delivered by Rome five years later.
After the 3-3 draw between Inter Milan and Roma, Mario Balotelli provoked a controversial penalty for Inter Milan, Mourinho came to the crossroads of the anger of Roma fans and pointed out Gallo Rossi will be “zero title” despite the roster full of “great players”.
Today, Roma is a youth team. Bosnian striker Edin Džeko (Edin Džeko) is one of the few senior figures.
Giallorossi is captained by the 24-year-old midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini. His most talented player is probably the 21-year-old midfielder Nicolò Zaniolo, who missed the entire season due to injury.
Last week Roma ranked seventh in Serie A and lost to Manchester United 6-2 in the first leg of the Europa League semi-finals. Mourinho will face a huge challenge.
Although Roma reached the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League in 2018, the team has not raised the trophy since winning the Coppa Italia in 2008.
“He is a very prestigious and experienced technician. Most importantly, he is a coach who knows Italy very well,” Fabio Capello told Roma News Agency. The team participated in the third and most recent Serie A match in 2001. I can respond in other brave places. I hope Roma fans can achieve the same achievements as Inter Milan. “
Mourinho’s hiring was announced a few hours after the club’s American boss announced the departure of current manager Paul Fonseca at the end of the season. Mourinho signed for three seasons.
Friedkins said: “Joseph’s appointment is an important step in the mentality of winning at the club.”
He is also the helmsman for Porto, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Tottenham who were fired last month.
In Rome, Mourinho will meet Thiago Pinto, the club’s sports director. The coach needed to resume his career after the recent defeat at Tottenham Hotspur, where the player’s indifference and rejection of his tactical plan caused him to lose his position after only 17 months at the London club.
This is the shortest cycle in the team since he broke into Porto at the turn of the century.
Mourinho said: “After talking to the owner and Tiago Pinto, I immediately realized how much they needed for the Roma.” “The same ambitions and ambitions have always inspired me. We all hope to build a successful project in the next few years.”
