On the latest edition of The Squad podcast, Sam Obaseki has been discussing the vacant Wolverhampton Wanderers manager job.
It was announced last week that Nuno Espirito Santo would step down as Wolves manager following the final game of the season on the weekend.
Would you have liked Mourinho at Wolves?
Discussing potential replacements for the departed 47-year-old manager, Obaseki stated he feels Jose Mourinho will be annoyed to have missed out on the opportunity following his appointment at Roma.
He said (15:11): “Also someone that actually would have loved this job, and is probably gutted that he took the Roma job too early is Jose Mourinho.
“He would have loved having that many Portuguese players and just telling them just ‘work hard, do what I need to do to win and do what you need to do to win.'”
TIF Thoughts on Wolves’ manager search…
Considering how Mourinho’s last two Premier League jobs have been terminated early by both Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur, we don’t view Mourinho as a realistic option for the Wanderers had he still been available.
It will be interesting to see how Wolves approach their search for a new manager. This season has been an underwhelming one by their recent standards so next season seems a huge opportunity to get themselves back competing for a European spot.
Reports have suggested Bruno Lage is in pole position to be appointed as the new manager, however, is that one which will excite the Wolves faithful?
