Where Will José Mourinho Head to Next?

Since AS Roma have now parted ways with José Mourinho and appointed former club captain De Rossi as the new manager, it will be interesting to see which football club or country will the Portuguese go to next in his managerial career. In this regard to this, one of the possible destinations for the Special One is to remain at Italy to manage another domestic powerhouses there, such as the likes of 2022/2023 Italian Serie A winners SSC Napoli.

On the other hand, should José Mourinho decide to leave the country for good, other options could be the Saudi Pro League, which the Portuguese had already expressed his interests to join earlier last year, or even a return to the English Premier League to coach a quality side namely Newcastle United. It is also worth mentioning that José Mourinho, who has yet to manage an international team, may finally take a different approach in his managerial career in leading his national side Portugal to the great glory at European and world stages, alongside five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo.
