Stalemate Between Roma and Mourinho Set to Continue

José Mourinho stated a few times that he’s willing to wait for Roma to make the call about his expiring contract. He’ll have to do it a while longer, as the Friedkin family hasn’t come to a decision yet. It might not happen anytime soon. The brass want to evaluate the results first and foremost, La Gazzetta dello Sport relays (via Tuttomercatoweb).

The Special One lost the support of part of the fan base following their elimination from the Coppa Italia at the hands of Lazio. His record in the Derbies leaves a lot to be desired. The boos were loud at the end of the match. Some supporters asked for his head on X afterward.

The Roma owners and Mourinho haven’t discussed the topic in recent weeks. Director Tiago Pinto was in the same situation and decided to leave. The gaffer isn’t plotting an abrupt exit. However, he might start fielding calls for the future.

The Giallorossi will have a busy and potentially decisive February considering the Europa League playoff and the tight Champions League race in Serie A.

Our Take on Roma and Mourinho

The outcome of their season won’t be known until its very end. It might be a common way to operate in American sports, but it’s unusual in football. Things seem to be headed toward a split. They’d be lucky if the Special One were still willing to continue with them if the decision indeed came so late.
