José Mourinho admits he doesn’t know if he’ll stay in Rome next season and insists that “anti-Mourinhism” is followed by those who are happy when the Giallorossi don’t win.
Mourinho has less than a year left on his contract at the Stadio Olimpico, expiring in June 2024. When asked if he’d be at the club next season, the Special One replied: “I don’t know. Before the final in Budapest, I promised the players that I would stay. After the match against Spezia at the Stadio Olimpico, I told the fans I would stay, and here I am now. Anti-Mourinhism is followed by people who rejoice when Roma don’t win. They have fun on the radio and that’s fine. But for me, the most important match is always the next one, the past is history,” Mourinho told Sky Sport. Mourinho had already cast doubt on his future at Rome last week when he announced that he’d coach in Saudi Arabia one day. Il Corriere dello Sport reported that the Giallorossi would sack the Portuguese coach if he lost to Cagliari last weekend, but club sources denied this, while Roma beat Claudio Ranieri’s team 4-1 in their final match before the October international break.
