José Mourinho sent the ball into the Roma brass’ court with his remarks following the Bologna game, where he openly stated he wished he stayed put. Despite some recurring criticism about his playing style, most supporters would be delighted if he continued to lead their dugout, and made it known online, Corriere dello Sport informs.
Some urged the management to offer the Special One, who’s on an expiring contract, a ten-year deal, while others invited the management to bolster the squad and make it worthy of his caliber.
Mourinho clearly stated his intentions (via Eurosport).
“The job I was given is to work to the fullest daily. The ownership is in control. I want to be clear and say that many things make me close to this club and their faithful. I don’t want people to think that my frustration is stronger than the affinity I feel for Roma. If it happens, my departure at the end of the season wouldn’t be my choice.”
“I don’t have a hint, but I’m working well with the hierarchy. I’m sure that, if it were possible, they’d spend €20/30M for a defender in January, but they can’t. They are as ambitious as I am. I don’t want to run from this situation. I’m open to any kind of project they have for the future. However, I have to choose my life before June, for me and this people. I will never say that I will leave.”
