I don't believe Mourinho is as relevant as people on here seem to think. He's washed.
Due to sentimental reasons. Geezer accomplished so much here, some fans think he's still a Demigod or something. I love Mourinho, always will. But the idea of having him as our manager again is simply not an ideal one. He'll only destroy his legacy if he comes back.

I say he has balls, many big coaches wouldn't take this Roma. Already had some drama with a few of the players. He'll be a contender for the fourth CL spot if he continues like this.

Always felt he deals with underdogs better than with champions type players, if you know what I mean

When was this?
His best moments came in Chrlski, Porto and Inter, where the teams did exactly what he wanted. Yeah he won with Real and United, but not as much, because he couldn't control the primadonnas


that Porto-Chelsea-Inter run was magical, a true showing of a team trusting the coach

His time at Real was magical too. It was when Barca shocked the entire world, their dominance and consistency were never seen before. I remember waking up on Monday, checked livescore and would would be surprised if the scoreline was anything under 4-0. That was crazy, nobody has come close to that level.

And Mourinho was the only one who could stop them. He was the chosen one. And he somewhat succeeded. He ended Pep's Barca but it was also the end of Mourinho the Special One. Their battles were so fierce, so stressful that everyone was on the verge of exploding, every game ended with nothing less than a fight. In the end, Mourinho outlasted Pep, but his players couldn't take his fierce mentality anymore, and I believe Mourinho himself couldn't take it much longer either.

And that was the end of the Special One. Mourinho came back to Chelsea, but the Special One never did. The day Mourinho called himself The Happy One was the funeral of the Special One. The Mourinho we knew was never happy...

He didn't have champion type of players in Porto, Chelsea, Inter? Were these teams consisted of underdogs type of players?

He made champions back in the day. At least in Porto and Chelsea.

This is very well put. The Real Madrid locker room broke the Special One. First time in his career he lost a dressing room, he was never the same. Maybe it was a sign of the time and a shift in generations of the players. Mourinho grew up coaching the prior generation and his stint at Inter was the last of that dying breed when you look at the ages.

Well I think we all see it around us. When Mourinho started the players were much more mature until social media came along. He stated numerous times that he didn't like this generation behaviour and said the players he coached in the beginning of his career were real men and now there are babies or something like that.

Sanchez is criminally under-utilised by Inzaghi. His minutes per goal contributions have consistently been the best for any Inter player for 2 years now, always scoring/creating a goal every 70-75 minutes. In similar minutes played this season, Sanchez has 18 goal contributions as compared to Correa's 6.

We should get rid of Correa and keep Sanchez next season.

Sanchez has to go. I appreciate what he’s done when he’s played but we can’t have that much salary allocated to a guy his age that struggles with injuries. Hopefully Dybala can take his space in the squad.

Him leaving means paying him 4 million, right? While if he stays, he earns 7 million?

I'm sure Dybala will be just as injured as Sanchez. If Dybala was really so amazing, Juve would do anything to keep him

They have Chiesa and Vlahovic they def dont need Dybala anymore. We have Dzeko, Correa and Sanchez, Dybala will be great asset for us.

Chile is trying to sue to get into the WC like little B itches :)

Maybe he will use that to force a move out without us paying him :)

Forced out ?

Sanchez, can still play but not at that salary. There is probably no way he'd agree to renegotiate his salary at a more reasonable level to help the team out and stay.
