Former Chelsea boss Mourinho, and his extra large ego are set to become the management team in charge of England according to the Sun, and they are even reporting that the odds on him being appointed next boss have now been slashed to 5/4.
Sun journos Jamie Pyatt and Steve Kennedy (quite why they need two people to write this guff is beyond us) write that:
“FA chief Brian Barwick is set to offer the big-headed former Chelsea manager, 44, a massive £6million-a-year deal.”
The Sun claims it is only a matter of time before the Special One signs on the dotted line with the FA and takes on what they call the “biggest job in world sport.”Hmmmm. A top-secret inside source said:
“There is no doubt that Jose wants the job and England desperately want him. He is the FA’s No1 choice. What is crucial now is for Jose to thrash out the fine details of a deal. That is why he is flying into London to meet Mr Barwick and other members of the FA board. It just depends on whether the FA can give him the deal he wants.”
The ‘source’ then described one of the main reasons for Mourinho’s possible return to Blighty (although all this ‘source’ japery is annoying us – how can we be sure that it isn’t just a Sun journo making up tripe dammit!?). The ‘source’ said:
“Jose’s family love England and he’d do anything to make them happy. Tami really misses her life in London. They have kept their home in the capital and would welcome a return. The children have also suffered bullying in Portugal. Of course, Tami has reservations. But she knows Jose is used to handling the big time. Turning around the England team is a great opportunity and really appeals to his ego.”
So as long as Barwick and his Dad’s Army of bumbling cronies can come up with a deal that will not only appeal to Mourinho but also his extensive retinue – the wife, his daughter, his Yorkshire terrier, his ego, and possibly even his ‘inside source’ – then we could have a Portu-geezer as England boss.
