There is a doubt about whether Jose Mourinho and Roma owners had a meeting to talk about the manager’s future or not.
Il Messaggero have provided some details about the case, stating that Dan Friedkin was present at Trigoria yesterday and he was there at the same time as Mourinho himself. The manager directed training at 4pm yesterday, just like he always does and while there is little doubt they crossed paths, there is no confirmation about whether they had a formal meeting regarding the Portuguese’s future or not.
There has been a distance between the Friedkins and Mourinho in recent months and it was perhaps reflected once again yesterday. After the loss to Sevilla in the Europa League, Mourinho had stated that he will head away from a vacation on Monday, hinting that he would like a meeting about his future before that. While it has been reported elsewhere that a meeting did take place yesterday, Il Messaggero, being a local paper, seem to have a different tone.
