Brazil Set to Tussle Portugal for Roma Manager Mourinho

Jose Mourinho recently revealed that he has no intention to part ways with Roma following links arising to the managerial job at Portugal. However, the entry of Brazil spices up the whole picture, as the five-time world champions seek someone experienced to take Tite’s place in the dugout.

La Repubblica indicate the Selecao birthing interest in the Special One to take on managerial duties following a disappointing World Cup campaign that saw them miss out of the trophy for the first time in two decades.

The Brazilian Football Federation (CBF), led by president Ednaldo Rodrigues, have reportedly contacted Mourinho’s entourage and wish to leverage the power of Mourinho’s agent Jorge Mendes to accelerate talks.

Brazil expect an answer from Mourinho before January end. Their hopes of signing Pep Guardiola ended when the Manchester City coach extended his stay by two years at the Etihad Stadium. Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti is another name linked to the post.

It is hard to see the Portuguese manager arrive at a decision before the end of the season.
