The Portuguese soccer expert and one of the best managers today, Jose Mourinho, is currently without a job, as he was fired from Roma a few weeks ago. While speculation hinted at a potential move to Saudi Arabia, that scenario does not appear to be playing out as expected.
Mourinho, known as "The Special One", is not one to take long breaks, and rumors are swirling about the next coaching position the Portuguese tactician could consider. Recent reports from the Mirror provide intriguing insights, suggesting that Jose Mourinho is waiting for a specific opportunity - the potential departure of Erik ten Haag.
According to speculation, Mourinho believes he has unfinished business at Old Trafford, where he worked between 2016 and 2018, winning the Europa League during his tenure. His departure then resulted in a staggering £26 million in compensation.
With the arrival of Sir Jim Ratcliffe, Mourinho sees a matured project at Manchester United. Given that Britain's richest individual wants reliable and pedigreed individuals around him, a reunion between Mourinho and the Red Devils could be on the cards.
"One of his goals is to return to United. He feels there is unfinished business after the split and is committed to returning there," an unnamed Mourinho associate revealed to the Mirror. In order for such a reunion to happen, it is crucial that Erik ten Haag loses the complete trust of Manchester United's management, a scenario that could take place in the coming period.
Manchester United does not have the results expected of them. It is true that they had many absent players due to injuries. However, now they are slowly coming back and last night United beat Wolwes 3-4 in an incredible game with a goal from young Maiino in the last minutes of the match.
Although these reports should be approached with caution, given Mourinho's track record, such a return cannot be completely ruled out. Mourinho's alleged ambition to return to Manchester United adds an element of anticipation and a possible return.
