The news, shared by Mourinho himself via his social media channels, has gone viral throughout the Mexican soccer community. It’s worth noting that Mourinho is currently at the helm of Roma in Serie A, Italy.
But which Mexican team has secured Mourinho’s services? Speculation has run rampant, particularly among fans of Amrica and Chivas, two of the most prominent teams in Mexican soccer.
The excitement is palpable. However, it appears improbable that ‘Mou,’ who currently enjoys idol status at AS Roma, would assume the reins of a Liga MX club at this juncture.
So, what does the video released by Jos Mourinho entail?
The video backdrop is simple, featuring a suit-clad Mourinho, sans tie, engaging with the camera as he makes the announcement of his signing with the biggest team in Mexico.
‘The Special One’ had previously received a lucrative offer from Arabian soccer but steadfastly declined, reaffirming his commitment to Roma and European soccer.
When pressed about the considerable contract he turned down, Mourinho stated that his career remains at the pinnacle of world soccer, making a departure from Europe unthinkable.
Notably, the video lacks any club logos, indicating that it pertains to a contract with an advertising agency.
In essence, Mourinho is set to become an ambassador for a Mexican brand.
