Roma’s ownership makes a decisive step landing the Special One to reshape the Giallorossi. Mourinho brings leadership, Dan and Ryan Friedkin show their ambition.

When the Roma fans were upset and worried about the future of their beloved team, something that may trigger a completely new era for Roma happened.

The Friedkin family silently decided to put their glorious club in the hands of one of the best coaches in the history of football, the Portuguese legend who, over the years, collected multiple trophies and excited the crowds with his personality.

Josè Mourinho is ready for a new exciting adventure and decided to accept the court of Roma right after the end of his spell at Tottenham Hotspurs. A new chapter of his glorious story as a manager is almost ready to begin and the club of the Italian capital seems to be the most engaging project to join at this time.

After months of silence, Dan and Ryan Friedkin have thought about their next move and surprised even the most skeptical football pundits selecting Mourinho as the Chief in Charge of the Roma roster.

What does Mourinho mean for Roma?

The Portuguese coach is synonymous with leadership and ambition. He wants to show everyone that Roma can win trophies and return to football elite. The Champions League must be the usual environment for the Giallorossi and the UCL semifinals reached in 2018 should not be considered an unachievable goal anymore.

Mourinho is a charismatic coach who will be capable of engaging his players pushing them over their limits. This is what he has shown over the years training top stars and young talents all over the world. The Portuguese coach from Setubal has managed pressure coaching Real Madrid, Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham, and Porto. He has plenty of experience in Serie A as well having managed and brought Inter to glory domestically and on the international stage.

Josè Mourinho is also a master communicator. Legendary are his interviews and press conferences in which the Portuguese coach has always demonstrated his ability to shield his players from criticisms, a wise strategy to leave them free to express their ability on the pitch. Roma needed a front man capable of centralizing the problems on himself and becoming the face of the club in the world.

Dan and Ryan Friedkin silently selected a legendary coach for Roma to relaunch their club towards football elite. The American investors are ambitious and their choice as a head coach resembles the move of the beloved former Roma president Franco Sensi when he had brought Fabio Capello to the Eternal City.

But now that Mourinho has been chosen, the Portuguese manager must be equipped with strong players compatible with his 4-2-3-1. The current season told us that Roma need technical adjustments on the pitch as well. Many players seem to be at the end of their spell in the Italian capital and new valuable additions must complete Mourinho’s roster. When Capello had joined Roma, the season after the then called “Re Leone” Batistuta landed in Rome as well.

The Friedkin family is ambitious and Mourinho is the essence of the desire to win and amaze seasoned with tactical wisdom and leadership. The basic ingredients to create a great Roma are already in place. The fans of the Lupi are now thrilled thinking about the next moves!
