The Roma coach assumes he was honored by the conversation with Fernando Gomez
Jose Mourinho revealed, Thursday, after Roma’s meeting with Genoa, the content of the conversation he had with Fernando Gomez regarding the possibility of taking over the national team. According to the Romanian coach, Fernando Gomez told him that he was not only the first choice, but also the only one. “Today I can talk to you about something that probably won’t interest you, but I take this opportunity to thank the president of the Portuguese Football Federation, because what he told me makes me proud. His first choice, but the only option, makes me proud. But I decided not to go. I’m here and that’s what It matters,” the Portuguese stated, quoting the Italian newspaper, “Gazzetta dello Sport.” Mourinho’s comments come on the heels of Fernando Gomez’s words during Roberto Martinez’s introduction, with the FPF president revealing that the only proposal made had been made to the Spaniard. “What interested me was profile identification. In this research we talked with a lot of people. I talk with most of the Portuguese coaches. The only concrete suggestion was Roberto Martinez,” he said.
