Mourinho snubs questions on becoming Ronaldo’s new manager


Roma manager, Jose Mourinho refused to answer questions about becoming the next head coach of Portugal after being swamped by reporters on Thursday.

Fernando Santos was fired from the role on the same day, following their shock exit from the 2022 World Cup in the hands of Morocco.

And Mourinho, upon arriving in Faro with the Serie A side, was bombarded with questions on his future from waiting journalists, but did not respond at all.

Mourinho simply smiled and picked up a microphone cover from the floor and handed it back to a journalist, before entering the team bus with his players.

There has been speculation Mourinho could ‘job-share’, keeping his current role at Roma while also taking charge of his country, although doing both is extremely rare.

The former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss has strong knowledge of Portuguese football, a good pedigree of winning trophies at the top level and has the clout to help manage big players with big reputations, for example Cristiano Ronaldo.

Santos dropped Ronaldo for their last two World Cup fixtures against Switzerland and Morocco.
