Jose Mourinho exits UEFA board after four-match ban as his conduct towards referee Anthony Taylor in the aftermath of the Europa league finals where Roma had to raise summer transfer funds after failing with their latest bid to sign Chelsea star Mason Mount.
Due to this the Portuguese had stepped away from UEFA football Board an advisory board made of former players and elite coaches.
Mourinho himself released the letter addressed to Boban:
Dear Mr. Boban,
In thanking you for the invitation you extended to me to be a member of the UEFA Football Board, I regret to inform you that, effective immediately, I will be renouncing to my participation in this group.
The conditions which I so strongly believed in when I joined are no longer standing and I felt the obligation to take this decision.
I kindly ask that you also communicate my decision to the President Mr. Aleksander Čeferin.
Manchester United have reportedly offered Donny Van de Beek to As Roma to raise Summer transfer funds after failing with their latest bid to sign Chelsea star Mason Mount. After having a £40 million initial bid rejected earlier this month, the Red devils offered a second bid worth upto £50m for mount on Wednesday, June 21. Mauricio Pochettino’s side rejected the improved offer for their star midfielder as they value him in the region of £65million as per the source. Russell Martin becomes southampton’s new manager in a two year contract.
Van de Beek is believed to be offloaded ahead of the next campaign after failing to cement a spot at Old Trafford. Since arriving from Ajax for an initial fee of £34 million, he has made just 60 appearances for his team and helped them lift an EFL Cup. Ange Postecoglo becomes Thottenham new manager in a two years contract after the end of the season.
A right-footed central midfielder blessed with shooting and passing, the 19-cap Netherlands international started just four of his 10 appearances last term. He missed a whopping 47 games in total as he suffered a season-ending knee injury in his side’s 3-0 Premier League home win against Bournemouth in January.
According to reputed journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Manchester United have offered their former boss Jose Mourinho an opportunity to sign the Dutchman. However, the Giallorossi are said to be interested in taking their time before arriving at a decision about the midfielder. Gary Neville insist premier league to stop players transfers to Saudi Pro League on the summer windows.
Van de Beek, whose current contract is set to expire in June 2025, could prove to be a decent signing for Roma should he decide to join them this summer. He could provide competition to Lorenzo Pellegrini in the advanced playmaker role and also operate in a deeper role alongside the likes of Bryan Cristante and Nemanja Matic.
Apart from Van de Beek, Manchester United are also reportedly interested in cashing in on midfielders Fred and Scott McTominay this summer.
Jose Mourinho manager Profile
Mourinho started his Premier League career in London when he was named manager of Chelsea in June 2004, before leaving early in the 2007/08 campaign.
He returned to the Blues on 3 June 2013, nine years and a day after getting his first taste of management in England’s top tier.
The Portuguese had previously had a semi-professional football career before making his coaching breakthrough in the backroom staff of Sir Bobby Robson at Sporting Lisbon, Porto and Barcelona.
After brief but successful stints in charge at Benfica and Uniao de Leiria, he won the UEFA Champions League with Porto in 2004, only a year after lifting the UEFA Europa League trophy in his first full season as manager.
Mourinho also won back-to-back Portuguese league titles and two domestic cup competitions at Porto before Chelsea came calling.
In his first campaign at Stamford Bridge in 2004/05, Chelsea won their first top-flight title for 50 years with a record haul of 95 points.
They retained the Premier League crown a year later and won the FA Cup and the League Cup twice with Mourinho in charge.
Mourinho left Chelsea in 2007 and his next managerial role came with Inter Milan, where he won the Serie A title and the Italian Super Cup in his first season.
Inter then retained the title while winning the Coppa Italia and the UEFA Champions League in a memorable 2009/10 campaign.
Real Madrid appointed Mourinho as their coach in the summer of 2010, going on to win the Copa del Rey in 2011 and edge Barcelona to the 2011/12 La Liga title.
