It’s still not 100 per cent certain where Jose Mourinho will coach next season. The Portuguese was sacked by Chelsea a few days before Christmas 2015 and has been the subject of many rumours since.
Mourinho has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United. The man who also coached Porto, Inter, and Real Madrid has been the favourite to take over from Louis van Gaal in the summer.
There have been talks between the Portuguese’s inner circle and the Red Devils. However, no formal offer has been made by United, meaning the race is still wide open.
According to The Sun, Valencia entered the fight for Mourinho. The Spanish club sacked Gary Neville last week and serious discussions have been held with the Portuguese’s camp over him taking over at the Mestalla.
But according to Goal, there’s also a third party trying to lure in the Portuguese: the Syrian national team. The Syrian FA posted a request they have sent to Mourinho’s agency inviting him to take charge.
The post on their official Facebook page reads:
“After a meeting between the president of the Syrian Football Federation; Salahuddin Ramadan, the vice-president of the Syrian Union Chairman of the national teams, the director of the first team, Fadi Dabbas and secretary-general of the Syrian Football Federation Qutaiba al-Rifaiit, it was agreed to send a formal offer to the agency of the coach Jose Mourinho to train the Syrian national football team.”
Now, let’s wait and see what ‘The Special One’ is going to answer…
