Still under contract with AS Roma until 2024, Portuguese coach José Mourinho is more than ever mentioned away from Italy. Indeed, if the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF) continues to insist on bringing home the Special One to take over from Fernando Santos at the helm of the Portuguese selection, the Brazilian Football Federation (CBF) wants to burn priority to his Portuguese-speaking friends and made a good suggestion to José Mourinho aiming to cure the ills of a disappointing Qatar World Cup with this quarter-final elimination against Croatia.

“Every coach wants to work with the best clubs and the best choices. The Brazilian team is obviously a successful and talented team. Regardless of the generation, talent always emerges. But I have to admit that it must be difficult. There is a coach inside in every Brazilian, even among journalists. I think it must be a complicated country to work in, but also very exciting. Since I have always had difficult positions, with high demands, I could well be tempted, yes. But I admit, that the Brazilian national team is often aimed at a Brazilian coach.”the current Giallorossi coach said in a 2017 interview for ESPN Brazilwhen he was in charge of the English club Manchester United.
