Seems that he could not apply his own piece of advice: do not react in case provoked. His ego is simply too big. And he is probably causing these episodes to divert attention from the squad (Roma lost to freakin Cremonese).The Portuguese coach was shown a red card early into the second half of Roma’s 2-1 loss to Cremonese on Tuesday after having a verbal altercation with Serra, who seemingly told the Giallorossi boss to ‘mind his f**king business’ after questioning a decision.
Following the red card, Serra said to Mourinho that “they all take the p*ss out of you, go home,” leaving the coach and his staff furious. The Roma coach was handed a two-match ban as a result, which has been appealed.
Mourinho visited the FIGC Federal Prosecutor’s Office to give his side of the story and was caught leaving the building following the meeting.
After the announcement of his retirement from professional football on Wednesday morning, Mesut Ozil has named Roma coach Jose Mourinho as ‘the best of this century.’
The 34-year-old closed play on his magnificent career in the professional game, which included domestic cup titles in three different countries as well as being part of the German World Cup winning side of 2014.
In a feature interview granted to Marca, Ozil declared the ex-Inter and current Roma coach Mourinho as the greatest he has ever played under.
The Portuguese convinced the then-21-year-old Ozil to join Real Madrid from Werder Bremen in the summer of 2010 for a fee in the region of €15m.
And it was Mourinho’s intervention that eventually convinced the German international to sign for Los Blancos instead of a switch to Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona.
Just another proof that Pep is a cunt and Jose is class.In his interview with Marca, Ozil explained: “For me, Jose Mourinho is the best coach of this century. His tactical understanding is on another level, but also his way of speaking in the dressing room and how he always protects his team in front of the media. He is truly a world class manager.
“I chose Real for him. He took me to see the stadium and all the trophies they had won. That gave me goosebumps. The visit to Barcelona was less exciting and what was most disappointing is that Pep Guardiola didn’t even bother to meet me.
“Before that trip I really liked Barcelona’s style and I could really imagine playing with them. So José Mourinho was definitely the biggest factor in my decision.”
High praise from the former world champion, whose three year spell under the special one clearly left a lasting impression.
Nothing new. It was pretty much the same when I started following Serie A in the late 90s.I was ashamed to follow Serie A when I saw that clip.
Corriere dello Sport suggests that Roma coach Jose Mourinho has received a €120m offer to coach for two years in Saudi Arabia.
The report details how the two year offer, €60m for each campaign, arrived directly from top officials in Saudi Arabian football, to coach either the national team or a club like Al-Nassr or Al-Ahil.
The Saudi Arabian national team, led by Hervé Renard, shocked the world with their World Cup win over Argentina. The French coach left his role after the tournament and has taken on the job as France Women coach.
Al-Nassr picked up Cristiano Ronaldo on a free transfer in January, signing him to an incredibly lucrative two and a half year deal. Recent reports in the media also suggest that they’ve prepared a €400m total offer to Lionel Messi, whose contract with Paris Saint-Germain is expiring in June.
Mourinho has already discussed the €120m offer with his staff, where he has been told a variety of different opinions. The internal debate is raging on, with some believing the offer and unbelievable salary is a chance in a lifetime.
I'm gonna go on a limb here and say that Serbian fans are A LOOOOT worse.... but indeed Dejan did nothing to deserve being verbally attacked.I was ashamed to follow Serie A when I saw that clip.
He was a former Lazio star. That's enough for Roma fans to verbally abuse him.I'm gonna go on a limb here and say that Serbian fans are A LOOOOT worse.... but indeed Dejan did nothing to deserve being verbally attacked.
