Mourinho’s vision for Al-Shabab unveiled

Jose Mourinho appears set to embark on a new managerial journey as reports from Saudi Arabia suggest he has verbally agreed to take charge of Al-Shabab.

The former Roma manager, recently relieved of his duties in Italy, had previously expressed interest in managing in the Saudi Pro League.

Despite rejecting a lucrative offer from Al-Hilal during his tenure at Roma, Mourinho’s desire for a Middle Eastern coaching experience seems to be materializing.

According to Saudi-owned newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat, Mourinho engaged in a Zoom meeting with Al-Shabab’s sporting director, Domenico Tite, leading to a verbal agreement for him to assume the managerial role.

If the deal is finalized, Mourinho is expected to arrive in Saudi Arabia in the coming days.

The report further suggests that the seasoned manager has plans to make significant international signings during the summer transfer window.

Al-Shabab, currently positioned 11th in the Saudi Pro League, boasts notable players like Yannick Carrasco and Ever Banega.

Mourinho’s potential arrival could herald a new era for the club, injecting experience and tactical acumen into their campaign.

As Mourinho explores fresh opportunities, his managerial journey could take an intriguing turn in the vibrant football landscape of Saudi Arabia.
