Roma head coach Jose Mourinho is set to take over as the next boss of Brazil, according to former Selecao international Carlos Alberto. Brazil is on the lookout for a new head coach after Tite stepped down, as planned, following Brazil’s disappointing defeat to Croatia in the World Cup quarter-finals last month.
Jose Mourinho will take over as next boss of Brazil
Mourinho is one of a number of names reportedly in the frame, while the 59-year-old has also been touted as a possible target for Portugal following Fernando Santos’ departure, though Roberto Martinez seems to be the frontrunner for that job. Carlos Alberto, who won the Champions League under Mourinho at Porto, says he has been offered the chance to work alongside the Portuguese as part of Brazil‘s coaching staff.
“I was going to drop a bomb here, but I can’t,” he told the Mundo GV podcast. “Maybe [Mourinho] is the coach of the Brazilian team. I’m speaking firsthand. It’s information.
“It doesn’t matter where the information comes from, I’m giving you the information… because he even invited me [to be his number two].”
