Newcastle eyeing 60-year-old as manager if Eddie Howe leaves

Posted by

Newcastle United could reportedly turn to Roma manager Jose Mourinho in case they lose current manager Eddie Howe to the England national team at any point in the near future.

According to reports in Italy, Mourinho is on Newcastle’s radar as an option as Howe continues to be strongly tipped as a successor to Gareth Southgate.

Mourinho has a fine record from his time in the Premier League, having won the title three times in two spells in charge of Chelsea.

However, more recently he struggled in spells in charge of Manchester United and Tottenham.

Mourinho is, however, understood to be admired by Newcastle’s backers PIF.

  2. Fred and you know this because you know Eddie personally and he told you he wouldn’t take it. I doubt if he knows if he would take or not at the moment, and would only make a decision if offered the job. Until he is offered and either does or doesn’t take it everything is speculation.

    1. No, I don’t know him. But I do know he isn’t a fool, and that’s enough to know he wouldn’t walk away from what he has now to take on the poisoned chalice of managing the England team.
