José Mourinho seeks assurances from Roma owner regarding club future

José Mourinho’s future at Roma is uncertain as The Special One is waiting for a meeting with team’s owners, Dan and Ryan Friedkin, before he takes any decision, Sky Sport reports.

Mourinho signed a three-year contract with Roma in 2021. In his first season, he led the Giallorossi to their first major trophy since 2008 by winning the Conference League.

During the World Cup break, he was approached by the Portuguese and the Brazilian football federation to become their coach but he turned down both offers to stay in Italy.

Now, he’s looking for reassurances from Roma’s owners and specifically, he wants to be assured that the team will be reinforced next season.

It’s reported that Mourinho would like to sign a new striker who will take Tammy Abraham’s place, a new center back and a new midfielder in order to compete for all trophies, Scudetto included.

To fullfil this plan, Roma have to get a Champions League spot first, either by finishing in the top four or by winning the Europa League. If they fail to do so, there is a good possibility that Mourinho could leave at the end of the season.

Roma currently sit in fifth place as they slipped after the 1-0 loss against Lazio in last Sunday’s derby but they’re still in contention for a Champions League spot as they’re just one point away from the fourth place.
