Jose Mourinho revealed he got several managerial offers
“Somebody had doubts about my position, but I said my stance clearly, and my target is not to leave doubts about it.
“So there isn’t even a reason to talk about it. It’s all clear and objective. To me, this is the situation. I’ve always been direct and clear since the beginning.
“One week after signing for Roma, I received a fantastic offer. I took the information honestly but didn’t accept it because I had an agreement with Roma.
“After winning the Conference in December, there was Portugal and you know about it. I could work with the best players in the world and have a chance to win the Euros and the World Cup.
“I spoke to the club, but it was important to stay for them, so I stayed. After the Budapest Final, I informed the owners about the situation in Arabia, but I decided against it. Now, my honesty ends here. What else to say? I’d like to stay and fight with all the difficulties, with all the conditions, with all the positive things, but this is my stance, and there are no doubts. I no longer want to talk about this situation anymore.”
