On the day he turns 22 as head football coach, José Mourinho confesses that he feels strong and motivated to continue his career, with the same taste for victories and the same aversion to defeats.
“[Anos de carreira] They passed quickly, but it is to continue. I feel good, I feel strong, motivated, I like to win, I hate to lose, nothing has changed. The hair color, yes, the wrinkles too, but that’s to go on. Not for another 22 years, which there is no time, but for a few more years”, said the Roma coach, at the entrance to the ‘Gala Quinas de Ouro’, which takes place today in Cidade do Futebol, promoted by the Portuguese Football Federation.
Asked about his expulsion in the last game, against Atalanta, which ended with the defeat of the Romans, Mourinho took it naturally: “Today, as I celebrate 22 years as head coach, being sent off is not new for me, it comes from for a long time, maybe it reflects my way of being and being. I don’t want it to change”.
Regarding Roma’s aspirations in his second season in front of the team, the coach from Setubal admits that he starts at a disadvantage compared to rivals, after last season he finished sixth in Serie A and won the inaugural edition of the Europa Conference League. .
“Last season we did what no one expected, this year we will try to do better. We don’t have the same economic potential as our rivals, we made a market of seven million euros, but we have quality, passion, a lot of people who like to work together, which is an important thing, and then at the end of the season we’ll see,” he said. Mourinho.
Finally, the conversation ended ‘dribbling’ the journalists, who wanted to know if he saw himself leading the team after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, in the face of a possible departure from the current coach: “You never know if Fernando Santos will not continue for many more years. We’re in the House of Selections aren’t we? Look at futsal, they win everything and don’t stop winning. Congratulations to them”.
The ceremony for the delivery of the ‘Quinas de Ouro’ takes place today in Cidade do Futebol, in a gala that is a moment of celebration for sports agents and football, futsal and beach football clubs.
This event, organized by the Portuguese Football Federation, Union of Professional Football Players and National Football Coaches Association, took place for the last time in September 2019 and was interrupted due to covid-19.
