Roberto Martinez the first choice as national coach Portugal? According to Jose Mourinho, that was not the case


Roberto Martinez was appointed as the new national coach of Portugal last week. The former boss of the Red Devils was supposedly the first choice of the union, but that is not true.

So says Jose Mourinho. ‘The Special One’ spoke after the cup match of his club AS Roma about the offer he received from the Portuguese Football Association.

“I would first of all like to thank the president of the federation,” said Mourinho. “What Fernando Gomes told me made me very happy and made me proud. He said that I was not only the first choice as the new national coach, but that I was also his only choice and that is why he would do anything to bring me back home. It was an honor, but I finally decided not to take it. I’m here in Rome, that’s what counts.”

In the meantime, Roberto Martinez would have traveled to Saudi Arabia to have his conversation with Cristiano Ronaldo. A promise he made during his performance.
