Mourinho discloses Italian Serie A job he rejected after Man Utd sack
Jose Mourinho, the Roma manager, has claimed he is “so happy” to have rejected the AC Milan job after he was sacked at Manchester United in 2018.
The 58-year-old’s snide comments came after a 3-1 defeat at the San Siro on Thursday night.
Milan led 2-0 within the opening 17 minutes, as Tammy Abraham’s 40th-minute goal became a mere consolation after Rafael Leao won the game late on.
“I was offered the [Milan] job three years ago,” Mourinho, who used to manage rivals Inter, revealed during his post-match press conference.
“I thought about it for three days, but I am so happy to have taken that decision.
“I am a professional, but there is still space for emotion. I am passionate about Roma and I will give everything for this club.”
