Roma boss Jose Mourinho discussed his future – which has been subject to several rumors linking him with coaching national teams and even a potential return to Chelsea – in today’s press conference ahead of Napoli-Roma.
“My future? That’s something the club will have to ask me about,” Mourinho told reporters. “When I was younger I’d discuss in public internal matters with the clubs I worked for. But having grown older I’ve learned to remain more balanced and less selfish.”
“The club will ask me about it once the time feels right for them,” he added.
“A few English newspapers wrote about that, as did some here, but I didn’t really understand it. Some were saying ‘Premier League clubs want Jose’ and others were saying ‘Jose wants the Premier League’.”
“But Jose does not want anything, has never wanted anything – I have always been calm and happy where I am and whatever happens, happens. I don’t want anything. I am happy living day-by-day.”
“When the club decides that it is time to talk with me about the future, then I am here. Every day. I basically sleep here every day. I hardly go home. But I prefer not to talk about these things with you. As you know, I am focused on Roma, all I think about is Roma and not worrying about my future.”
