Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is being considered to replace Mauricio Pochettino as Paris Saint-Germain’s head coach, The Telegraph’s Jason Burt reports.
Jose Mourinho is one of the most successful managers to grace the game of football. He has lifted trophies at every club he’s managed since taking over at Porto in 2002 – his third job – bar Tottenham Hotspur, and even then he was dismissed days before their Carabao Cup final loss to Manchester City.
Mourinho is a serial winner, though, his reputation has taken a slight knock over the years with troubled spells at Manchester United and Tottenham. Determined as ever though, the 59-year-old has regained some of his old magic in starting something special at Roma.
He has guided the Italian side to European success and they look to be working towards even better things in Serie A.
However, PSG are now considering the Portuguese coach with Mauricio Pochettino expected to be sacked in the coming days as the club oversees major changes.
According to reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano, Luis Campos, who has worked with Jose Mourinho before at Real Madrid, has signed an agreement to be the new face of PSG’s project. It would be no surprise if the former Lille director of football was behind the interest in his former colleague Mourinho.
It’s no secret that PSG are on a mission to deliver success in Europe and despite a near miss under Thomas Tuchel have largely disappointed in the Champions League.
Jose Mourinho has proven several times he can succeed in Europe and has just done so again with Roma in his first year in charge.
