It is known that Chelsea, which has been struggling with the manager appointment problem throughout the season, tried to contact Jose Mourinho (60), AS Roma manager. However, as the manager himself refused, it is expected that there will be no ‘Mourinho 3rd term’ Chelsea.
The British Mirror quoted a report from Football Italia on the 2nd (Korean time), saying, “Chelsea has contacted Mourinho to ask him about the possibility of returning,” and “But Mourinho declined the discussion. He is currently in discussions with Roma to clarify his future at the club.”
Coach Mourinho, who took the helm of Tottenham in November 2019, was sacked two years later due to poor performance. Immediately after returning to the familiar Serie A stage ahead of the 2021-22 season, he presented the club with a European trophy for the first time in 61 years and showed off his ‘Special One’ appearance again. As a result, during the season, he was also a candidate for the command tower, such as Paris Saint-Germain (France) and the Portuguese national team 메이저놀이터.
His parent team, Chelsea, is also known to have tried to contact him, drawing attention. Previously, manager Mourinho led Chelsea twice, sharing good memories with three Premier League titles, one FA Cup title and three League Cup titles. However, as manager Mourinho rejected it, it seems that Chelsea’s third term will not take place.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are having a rough season after switching to the Todd Boelli owner system. Thanks to the huge transfer funds, they succeeded in reinforcing players, but the results that matched them did not come out. As of the 1st, the league ranking fell to 12th place. At the beginning of the season, he broke up with coach Thomas Tuchel, and it seems to be twisted from the appointment of coach Graham Porter, who he chose afterwards. Coach Porter was also hardened due to poor performance, and even coach Frank Lampard, who was brought in as a temporary firefighter, recently bowed his head with five consecutive losses. Local media are citing former PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino as a strong candidate as the next head coach.
Chelsea will try to escape a losing streak in the 34th round of the 2022-23 Premier League against Arsenal on the 3rd.
