Jose Mourinho interrupted by Roma stars celebrating Conference win

Jose Mourinho has already declared that he is staying at Roma next season as the Portuguese manager is linked to the Paris Saint-Germain job.

Mauricio Pochettino is set to learn his fate this week as PSG chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi makes a final decision on his future. The Telegraph suggests that Mourinho could be in line to succeed the Argentine for the second time in his career.

It was the self-proclaimed ‘special one’ who replaced Pochettino when he was dismissed from his post at Tottenham in late-2019. Mourinho has underlined his commitment to Roma, however, following the Italian side’s emotional victory in the Europa League Conference final against PSV last week as he was asked about his future amid links with Newcastle.

But the former Chelsea manager insists that he wants to build on Roma’s success from this season as they won their first-ever European trophy, declaring that he will be in the Stadio Olimpico dugout for the new campaign. Fighting back tears, Mourinho said: “There are so many things going through my head.

“So many things at the same time. I’ve been at Roma for 11 months, I realized the moment I arrived what it meant, they were waiting for this.

“As I told the lads in the locker room in Turin, we did what we needed to do, qualify for the Europa League. We had great work all season. This was not work tonight, this was history. We had to write history. We wrote it.

“The Conference League is a competition that we had the sensation from the start we could win, but it got a stronger competition when the Europa League teams came in, Leicester, Olympique Marseille and Feyenoord. But we were counting on it, we could ‘ ve had a few more points in Serie A, but we put so much into this competition.

“Now I am staying, there are no doubts. Even if some rumors emerge, I only want to remain at Roma. We must understand what our owners, who are fantastic people, want to do next season, because this is history.

“But we can build a really strong project with honest professionals. We need to sit down and understand what the plan is for next season.”

It is widely expected that Pochettino will follow Leonardo out of the door but the fact he still has not been told either way suggests talks are ongoing with potential replacements
