Jose Mourinho on Roma future: “I don’t know if I’ll be able to stay longer”

Roma boss Jose Mourinho has revealed that he is uncertain about whether he would stay at the club beyond the summer of 2024.

Mourinho’s current deal at the Giallorossi expires at the end of this season and talks haven’t been held or progressed regarding his long-term stay at the Stadio Olimpico. 

The Portuguese recently spoke to Sky Italia (via La Gazzetta dello Sport) about his future at the club, amongst other things. And he spoke about it in some detail, revealing that the Friedkins had gifted him a Vespa when he had arrived at the club but he doesn’t know when he will take it away.

He said: “It’s always there in Trigoria, the club gave it to me when I arrived. In Trigoria, unfortunately, there are not many cups and there is the Vespa. Now I leave it there, when one day I leave I will take it with me.”

He opened up further about his future and stated: “I don’t know if I’ll be able to stay longer. Before the final in Budapest I promised the players that I would stay. After Spezia, at the Olimpico, with gestures I told the fans that I would stay here and now I am here.”

After an initially poor start to the campaign in Serie A, Roma have won their last two games to recover and recently picked up a dominant 4-1 win over Cagliari. As things stand, they are tenth in the table and Mourinho would definitely want more.
