Mourinho’s Interesting Reaction to Roma Fans Asking About His Future With the Club
- Roma won their last Serie A game of the season 2-1 against relegation strugglers Spezia
- The Italian capital club put the disappointment of the Europa League final loss behind them
- Jose Mourinho is at the centre of attraction again, as his future at the club continues to remain unclear
Jose Mourinho appeared to tell Roma fans he will stay at the club with his gesture after the 2-1 win over relegation strugglers Spezia in the season's final game.
The Special One unexpectedly joined the club in 2021, signing a three-year contract. He endeared himself to the Giallorossi fans by winning the Europa Conference League in his first season.
He helped the club reach their second European final, the Europa League, in his second season. They lost 4-1 on penalties in a very controversial manner.
His future at the club is a subject of speculation as some top clubs have vacancies, and Roma have not invested much into the squad, with FFP's eye on them.
Mourinho’s telling reaction to fans
Roma put the disappointment of the Europa League final loss aside, and will re-enter the competition next season after finishing sixth in the Serie A table.
As seen in a video shared on Twitter by La Roma 24, Mourinho was walking off the pitch when fans quizzed him about his future. His reaction suggested he would stay, after he pointed to the ground and waved back.
The former Chelsea boss revealed after the Europa League final that he will proceed on holiday today and hold talks with the club later. He also revealed that Portugal's national team approached him before they hired Roberto Martinez.
Mourinho risks lengthy ban
Sports Brief reported that Jose Mourinho risked a lengthy ban after he ambushed English referee Anthony Taylor in the parking lot after the Europa League final.
Taylor had a poor outing, and Mourinho clarified his feelings by screaming explicit words at him. This could earn him a lengthy ban after an investigation by UEFA.
