Momentum Building Toward Mourinho Staying at Roma

José Mourinho has publicly thanked the Roma brass for their support following the Sassuolo game amid an ongoing investigation after his preventive comments about the referee. The hierarchy had rarely joined the Special One in his battles in his two years at the helm. The change of pace might nudge him closer to a renewal, La Repubblica reports.

The gaffer had voiced his disappointment for the situation right after the Europa League final against Sevill. Owner Dan Friedkin stayed silent while he loudly protested against UEFA and the official.

The Roma owners and Mourinho seem more on the same page than in recent weeks, when his departure appeared more likely than not. The extension talks haven’t started yet, but there are starting to be some signals toward it.

At this stage, the Special One has no alternative landing spots besides Saudi Arabia. He hopes Real Madrid become a possibility. The faithful are backing him and clamoring for his permanence in each game.

Our Take on Roma and Mourinho

Considering his popularity, the Giallorossi would take a big risk in moving on from him, especially if the season goes reasonably well. Keeping him would be a no-brainer if they finished in the top four, and he’s an umbrella for a lot of their problems. They have a shot given the issues of the other contenders. His exit would be justifiable only with a stark change of strategy, going with an up-and-comer to start a rebuild and make the team more sustainable.

  1. It will only benefit Roma for Mou to stay. For a team with such budget, only a genius like Mou will have that and still be thinking of silverware.
