Mourinho Restless over Roma Lack of Economic Firepower

José Mourinho won’t leave Roma for Portugal, even though he’s not against the idea of helming the national team in the future. He’ll keep the temperature high internally to push the Giallorossi to improve the squad, La Stampa informs (via Calciomercato).

The Special One is reportedly frustrated with the limitations of the Financial Fair Play. He believes them to be an excessive hindrance to the club’s ambitions. Before deciding his future, he’ll take his time to see whether the team can make the leap. He’d be up for an extension in June. Top sides rarely go into a season with a coach on the final year of his contract.

Roma have keyed in on Davide Frattesi as the next gift to appease Mourinho. According to Sky, if their chase were successful, they could switch to a three-man midfield when Georginio Wijnaldum is ready.

While it’s never easy to negotiate with Sassuolo, the Giallorossi have multiple weapons at their disposal. However, they have to contain the spending. Considering the discount and the possible inclusions of Edoardo Bove and Cristian Volpato, it could be around €15M, Corriere dello Sport relays.

Our Take on Roma and Mourinho

The doubts of the Special One are legitimate since the Giallorossi spent little last summer. If that continued, it’d be hard to keep up with the competitors. FFP is often an excuse, and American ownerships seem to be the only ones that abide by it diligently. If Portugal opt for a caretaker manager, that’d be telling about his future.
