Director Jose Mourinho’s leadership is shining.
Mourinho is a world-class manager. He has to talk for a long time even if he only lists winning careers. While coaching FC Porto, he led Porto to the UEFA Champions League (UCL) title and won the treble with Inter Milan. Even when he was in charge of Chelsea, he overcame the fierce competition of the English Premier League (EPL) and won the championship by setting the record for the least goals conceded. At Real Madrid, they beat Barcelona to win the Spanish La Liga and Copa del Rey during that time. Manchester United also lifted the UEFA Europa League (UEL) trophy.
Mourinho has not been able to consistently maintain his position as a world-class coach. The time at Tottenham Hotspur is considered a blot on Mourinho’s career. In his first season at Tottenham, Mourinho achieved a poor record of 6th in the league, and in his second season, the famous ‘Mourinho second year’ jinx was broken and continued to be sluggish, and eventually was hardened.
Tried to make a comeback in Rome. Mourinho was sacked from Tottenham and was appointed Roma manager about two weeks later. And Mourinho returned to glory by winning the UEFA Europa Conference League (UECL) in his first season. He also finished 6th in the league, ending the season one step higher than 7th in the previous season.
This season, it seems that ‘Mourinho’s second year’ is being applied. Roma are currently in third place in the league with 56 points, behind Napoli and Lazio. The difference between Lazio in second place is 5 points and the difference between AC Milan in fourth place is 3 points. This season, Italy’s Serie A is in an atmosphere where Napoli, which is leading with overwhelming momentum, is certain to win. Considering this point, Roma led by Mourinho is showing considerable competitiveness. 메이저놀이터
If Roma finish this season in 4th place or better, they have a pretty good chance of qualifying for the UCL next season. So, Roma, who has not been able to compete in the UEFA Europa League (UEL) and UECL or even compete in the European competition, will return to UCL after 5 seasons after the 2018-19 season. Coach Mourinho is preparing to give Roma another gift after winning the UECL.
