Jose Mourinho might have been one of the best football managers around the world, but his tenure at Manchester United has always been under controversies due to his inability to make them win any major trophy apart from the Europa cup in the past three years of his reign at united. Although he was been welcomed with both hands by both team management and supporters initially, things actually didn’t turn out well for him over the time.
Mourinho has often been criticized for his tactics and strategies at united and he was been alleged of taking the team away from what they used to be few years back. Eventually, he has been sacked by the united team board in the wake of a dismal start to the EPL season this year and their recent defeat to their arch rivals Liverpool. Now that he has parted ways from the united team, chances are that he will be pursued by many other teams across Europe for the managerial role. Whilst we said that, let’s have a look at some of his most probable destinations in the same regards.
Although most of the people would write off Valencia from the list simply because of their big stature in the laliga along with limited spending abilities, it could very well be the next possible destination for Jose Mourinho. The biggest probability of making that happen is Jose’s agent, Jorge Mendes who is a close ally of Valencia’s owner Peter lim. Its worth mentioning here that most of the clients of Jorge Mendes has represented or still representing their respective teams at La liga and some of the notable names are Goncalo Guedes, Andre gomes, Joao Concelo, Nicolas otamendi, Gabriel paulista and Ezequiel garay.
One of the other reason for Valencia to pursue Mourinho is their current standing in the La liga which is 14th with only three victories out of the 16 matches in total they have played this season. They have already been relegated from Champions league and would be playing the Europa league next year. Therefore, there’s every chance that Valencia will go for Mourinho in order to bring back their lost touch and whilst the contract of their current manager Marcelino Garcia toral would be expiring at the end of this season, we can certainly expect mourinho to come over as a replacement for him.
#4 National Team of Portugal
What could’ve been a better destination for the Portuguese Mourinho than managing his own national team. Although his managerial stint with various clubs across the globe has kept him away from taking on the national duties, he has largely been asked about the fans and the media in the past few years to take up the significant role altogether.
Still, it won’t be that easy for Mourinho to get along with the managerial role at Portuguese team as their current manager Fernando Santos is doing some fantastic job whilst taking care of the team since past few years. It was under his reign only, that Portugal has won the Euro 2016 and whilst he had a big list of achievements under his belt, the road to the manager role for Mourinho is not easy by any means. Moreover, many players at the club like Ronaldo and pepe might not go easy with their former coach at Real Madrid and that could obstruct the whole process.
#3 Bayern Munich
Bayern Munich is currently struggling the Bundesliga which has been their undisputable forte for the past few years and its after almost 6 years that the side seems like losing their dominance in Germany to Borussia Dortmund this season under the supervision of Nico Kovac. Moreover, the German club has been drawn against a tough Liverpool side in the knockout rounds of the Champions league which is riding high on an array of magnificent performances since the past few months.
Mourinho might be the right addition to Bayern in this case scenario and whilst most of the players at Bayern are into their mid thirties, there’s every chance that Mourinho could be roped in as a manager in the midst of the season while bringing along some significant replacements alongside by the team management. Bayern very well remember the 2010 champions league finals when their side went down to the Inter Milan team under the management of Jose mourinho. This can work as an added factor to the whole instance.
#2 Real Madrid
Although there will be players and fans at Real Madrid which might won’t like to see Mourinho again in a managerial role at the club, he can certainly come over as a rescue ranger for their struggling start to the Lal liga season this year. Madrid might not have forgotten his contribution to the club few years back when he took their team to La liga , Copa del ray and Spanish super cup glory in the three years of his charge at the club and he was the one who also made them reach the semifinals in the UCL in all those years as well.
He was the one who made them beat down a strong Barcelona team in the 2012 season to claim the La liga title and Madrid managed to score a record 121 goals in the process. On the other hand, one of the team mates at Real Madrid, Marcelo has already expressed his views supporting Jose mourinho for his managerial capabilities even after getting sacked by Manchester united team recently. This been said, we can certainly expect something to cook over anytime soon in the same regards.
#1 Inter Milan
If there’s any club where Mourinho hs flourished better than anywhere else, it is Inter Milan and the same club might be thinking big time to bring on the same reunion with their former manager in the coming season. Mourinho was the man who made them win five trophies during his two year’s stint at the club and it was under his superviioson only, when Inter has scored a treble victory in 2010.
Moreover, after Mourinho’s exit, the club has hardly won any major trophy and their last title victory came way back in 2011 when they won Coppa Italia. Talking about the current situation of the club, Inter is reeling down at third spot in the Italian Serie A with a significant 14 points difference between them and the table toppers Juventus. Also, he will be coming along with some fantastic group of players if got roped in as a manager and players like Icardi, Handanovic, Naingollan, Martinez and skriniar can certainly be the perfect bunch to make the club secure a silverware after 7 years of wait.
