Former Chelsea defender, Frank Lebouef, has suggested that Jose Mourinho still harbors a significant ambition in his coaching career. Following a series of disappointing results, Roma parted ways with the 60-year-old on Tuesday. Despite guiding the Serie A club to the Europa League final last season and winning the Europa Conference League in the previous campaign, Roma currently sits in ninth place in the league, having won only one of their last five matches.

As Mourinho looks for his next coaching opportunity, Lebouef reveals that the former Chelsea and Manchester United manager has a desire to lead his native Portugal. In an interview with ESPN FC, Lebouef shared, “I remember interviewing Mr Mourinho when he was at Madrid or Chelsea when he came over to Los Angeles. He admitted that the last thing he would love to do in his coaching career would be to get the Portuguese national team job. I think that’s going to be his goal.”

Considering the current situation with Roberto Mancini, who is the current manager of the Portuguese national team, Lebouef suggests that Mourinho might be patient and assess the situation during the Euros before potentially taking up the position if the opportunity arises.
