Jose Mourinho has dismissed the possibility of becoming the new Paris Saint Germain manager.
It is reported that the former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss will leave Real Madrid in the summer after being reported to have fallen out with several players at the club. He has also been criticised because of their failure in the league. Madrid lie in third place behind city rivals Atletico Madrid and a massive fifteen points adrift of leaders Barcelona.
Despite his departure appearing to be imminent from Real Madrid, Mourinho has ruled out replacing Carlo Ancelotti at PSG. Talking to RMC Radio, he said “No, I don’t think I will coach PSG. The success of PSG with Ancelotti and Leonardo means they have no need for another coach. I hope everything goes well for Carlo and PSG. Europe needs to have a city like Paris competing at the top level of football, and I think this project is going to work.”
With his team so far behind in the league, Mourinho has also conceded the Spanish title, instead preferring to focus on success in the Copa del Rey and the Champions League. “The La Liga title is impossible now, there is too big a gap. We have to focus on other goals like the Copa del Rey and the Champions League,” he said.
Roberto Mancini made a similar comment last year before claiming the Premiership title on the final day of the season; however there does not seem to be a psychological edge to Mourinho’s statement with his side so far behind their competitors. The Special One also added, “It does no good to obsess over these things, obsession only makes things more complicated. Nothing will be easy. We need to stay calm and make the most of every opportunity.”
