The legend of Manchester United is open to the notion of “The Special One” leading Newcastle and England, however he is aware that none of these are likely to occur.
After two and a half years with the Italian team, Mourinho left Roma, having won just eight of the 20 Serie A matches played this year.
The 60-year-old is apparently in negotiations with Napoli, and he has also been linked to Saudi Pro League teams and a move into international management, so it doesn’t appear like he will be unemployed for long.
Mourinho has managed numerous of Europe’s top teams, including Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid, United, and Tottenham, during the course of his incredibly successful career.
With three Premier League titles, an FA Cup, and three League Cups under his belt, Chelsea stands out as the only team he has returned to. Ferdinand thinks a third visit to Stamford Bridge would be a huge hit, albeit it is improbable.
Mourinho, to Chelsea? On the Vibe with Five podcast, the former England and United defender stated, “No chance.”
The owners of Chelsea, these guys, these Americans, don’t act in such a retrograde manner. They are not regressing in terms of talent or class—rather, they are not acquiring [a previous management].
To be honest, I would really love to see Jose back there. I personally hope that Jose is hired in the event that [Mauricio] Pochettino performs poorly. They will likely stick with Pochettino, in my opinion.
Ferdinand, who acknowledges that he would appoint the Portuguese to lead the Three Lions, thinks Mourinho may be a suitable fit for Newcastle or England in addition to the Blues.
“Where will he go if he doesn’t go to Chelsea?” Newcastle? “I hope to see him there,” he continued.
However, Eddie Howe has been incredible, man. I would not wish Eddie’s departure.
“It seems unlikely that the FA would employ a Jose Mourinho.” Yes, I would.
However, I don’t believe the FA They are not switching to Mourinho from Gareth Southgate. That character and personality difference is just too great. It isn’t taking place.
“Bruv, that’s like switching from ready salted to vindaloo.” It’s not taking place.
