The reason Jose Mourinho wont manage Real Madrid

first_imgA report from Marca confirms that the Real Madrid board of directors is not even considering the option of bringing Jose Mourinho back.Right after Jose Mourinho was sacked from Manchester United, the Spanish press started speculating on the Portuguese manager’s possible return to Real Madrid.There have been debates about this topic in the last couple of days, talking about Santiago Solari having pressure to improve and win the FIFA Club World Cup or Mourinho could take over immediately.However, an interesting report from Marca just surfaced where they confirm that the board of directors is actually not considering the option sooner or later.Real Madrid doesn’t think that bringing Jose Mourinho back to the club is the best idea for a number of reasons, the most important is that Solari is the club’s manager right now and they completely trust him to take the squad to a successful season.But other reasons include the manner in which the Portuguese manager left a few years back, with the dressing room on fire and half the players rooting for his dismissal.Jose Mourinho developed a poor relationship with some of the most important players in the squad during the final years and this affected the club’s performances inside the pitch.The club considers that taking the manager back right now or even later, would mean going back and they are not interested in that at the moment.harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…But perhaps the biggest reason they are not looking to sign Jose Mourinho back from Real Madrid, is the recent bad results that the manager has been piling up on his resume.Granted, he did win titles in both of the clubs where he managed during his first seasons but many of the same patterns from his final year at Los Blancos have emerged in England.The board of directors actually has a great friendship with the manager, they ask him for advice on a regular basis but they consider that his time as a manager for Real Madrid is long gone.🗣️@RobertoGomezOC en #LaTribu: “Sergio Ramos lo único que tiene que hacer es jugar al fútbol, no elegir entrenadores”.🤔¿Mourinho de vuelta al Real Madrid?📻 https://t.co/ilgsizI4uT pic.twitter.com/2BshSudPsu— Radio MARCA (@RadioMARCA) December 19, 2018last_img read more
