Jose Mourinho Reveals Turning Down Offer to Stay with Roma


Portuguese Jose Mourinho, coach of Italian football club Roma, has revealed that he turned down an astronomical offer last summer to remain with Wolverhampton this season.

Mourinho’s Struggles with Roma

Jose Mourinho admitted after last Thursday’s 1-4 defeat to Genoa that he had had the “worst” start of the season for him and his Roma side, with just one win in six matches compared to two draws and three defeats, and he ranks sixteenth in the Calcio rating table with 5 points.

In his post-match statements, Mourinho said: “It’s true, this start is the worst in Roma’s history and also the worst for me as a coach in my entire career.”

He added: “But it is also true that Roma have never before in their history qualified for two European finals in a row.”

Mourinho’s Commitment to Roma

Jose Mourinho, before the match with Frosinone, today, Sunday, in the seventh round of the league, said that he continues his mission with Roma, despite the team’s recent decline in results.

Mourinho said in statements to the press: “I have received the biggest offer for a managerial position in the history of football.”

According to renowned sports journalist Fabrizio Romano, an expert on player transfers in Europe, Saudi club Al-Hilal offered Mourinho a salary of €30 million annually net, but the Italian coach rejected the offer.

Mourinho’s Loyalty to Roma

The Special One added: “I decided to turn down the offer because I told the Roma board, the fans and the players that I would stay. I gave them my word.”

Jose Mourinho (60 years old) said: “I will continue to play for the Roma team until June 30, 2024, and I am fighting for the team and the club management has not asked me to leave. I keep fighting and I’m not afraid.”
