Mourinho recounts the big offers he turned down from Saudi Arabia to stay at Roma


Although it has been speculated that Jose Mourinho may leave Europe this summer, he is expected to continue his stay at Roma.

The Portuguese strategist has shown that he has rejected two big offers from Saudi Arabia to continue managing the Giallorossi.

The Saudi Pro League has attracted a large number of well-known football names this summer, including coaches.

“Saudi Arabia? Al Hilal and Al Ahli. Yes. Before going to the meeting, I notified the owners clarifying that I did not plan to accept. I told them the same thing at home.”


“On the one hand, I felt like a prisoner of the word I gave to the players in Budapest and the fans behind Spezia, imitating the attitude.”

“But if you ask me if I rejected them only for this reason, I will answer ‘no’, not only for this reason,” Corriere dello Sport quotes Mourinho as saying.
