Mourinho claims those with ‘Anti-Mourinhism’ agenda want him out of the Roma job

Roma boss Jose Mourinho has responded to critics calling for his departure from the Serie A club due to their challenging beginning to the new season.

The 60-year-old asserted that there is an ‘Anti-Mourinhism’ sentiment within specific segments of the Roma fanbase. He had been facing significant pressure before his team’s crucial victory over Cagliari, prompted by an unimpressive start to the season.

“There is Anti-Mourinhism too. Especially in Rome, you can find both sides,” he said in the aftermath of the win.

“Anti-Mourinhism is followed by people who are happy when Roma don’t win and when Roma have no European success. They have fun on the radio and that’s fine. I’m saying this because I meet people on the street, in any part of the world, who identify with my way of living life. To me, however, the most important game is always the next one, the past is history.”

Roma is gradually making its way up the Serie A standings, with Mourinho’s team currently positioned in tenth place after securing consecutive victories over Frosinone and Cagliari.

Earlier reports had indicated that the club might consider parting ways with Mourinho if they didn’t defeat their most recent adversaries. This development came just a few months after the former Chelsea boss turned down lucrative offers from the Saudi Pro League.

Speaking on the possibility of working in Saudi Arabia eventually, Mourinho said: “I will go to Saudi Arabia in some free time. But I am convinced that I will work there. I don’t know when, but I am pretty sure of it. Doors are always open for me in Saudi Arabia. I want to feel the development there.”
