  • Jose Mourinho has said that he wants to coach for a few more years, but the end of a successful career is fast approaching
  • The 59-year-old has won almost everything during his 22 years of management in Europe
  • The Portuguese has managed some of the best teams and players in Europe to become both an endearing personality and a loathsome figure in football

AS Roma coach Jose Mourinho is far from retiring from management but has sadly hinted that his outstanding career on the sidelines will be coming to an end soon enough.

Mourinho has enjoyed phenomenal success in Europe's top clubs and has become one of the sport's most polarising personalities.

According to the Daily Mail, Mourinho still has some hunger and passion for the game, and although he expects to bid the game goodbye soon, he wants to manage for a few more years.

The Roma coach has won every trophy imaginable during his managerial career, but success has slowly faded away in the last few seasons. The 59-year-old became the first coach to win the Europa Conference League with the Italian side.

These 22 years have passed quickly, but I want to continue,' Mourinho said at the 2022 Quinas de Ouro event.
I feel good, I feel strong, and motivated, I like winning, I hate losing, nothing has changed.

Mourinho said that he can't do 22 more years of management.

The colour of my hair, yes, even the wrinkles, but I want to go on. Not for another 22 years, as there is no time, but for a few more years.

The 'Special One' burst onto the scene when his unfancied Porto side shocked the world by winning the 2004 Champions League title. He went on to win many more titles at Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Manchester United.

Roman Abramovich wanted to buy Arsenal in 2003

Earlier, Sports Brief reported on former Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich's intention to buy Arsenal in 2003 but was told it was not for sale.

Abramovich hired Mourinho as his first permanent manager when he took over at Chelsea, and the two would form a successful partnership at Stamford Bridge. Under Mourinho, the Blues broke numerous records, including conceding the fewest goals in a 38-game campaign. He would also bring Chelsea's first league title in 50 years.
