The jubilee Mourinho gave the media another iconic press conference

In recent years, Jose Mourinho has always been the most attractive coach when it comes to his appearances in the media space.

The Roma boss celebrated his 60th birthday on Thursday and today gave a cult press conference ahead of the derby between Wolves and league leaders Napoli.

Two of the Special’s speeches caused commotion and smiles in the hall, the most significant of which was Mourinho congratulating Napoli on their championship.

Neapolitans lead by 12 points over the second Milan, but with only 19 rounds played. According to Jose, his Sunday opponent cannot be overtaken in the ranking.

“Napoli have already won the Scudetto and deservedly so. I congratulate them. They are a great team with a great coach, they lead by 12 points and nobody can threaten them. The Scudetto is theirs. If you ask me, can we stand in their way, he will say no. We will try to get a result, but that does not change the fact that they are already champions,” said the Portuguese.

He also made the curious revelation that he wanted one of the current Napoli players while he was in charge of Tottenham. It is about the South Korean defender Kim.

“I wanted to attract him to Tottenham, but the club did not support me. I spoke with him several times on FaceTime. He was worth 10 million, and Tottenham gave me 5. A deal could be done for about 7-8 million, but Tottenham did not want to spend. I kept talking to the boy and he wanted to come, but there was no way. And now this “weak” defender plays in Napoli,” Jose said with irony.

Roma continues to be in a very good position in the standings, being in fourth place with 37 points, just one behind second-placed Milan. For Mourinho and company, there are also battles with RB Salzburg in the Europa League.
