According to a report by Spanish media outlet Marca, the Bianconeri superstar has put The Special One’s name forward for the coaching job.
Massimiliano Allegri is set to leave Italian Lega Serie A juggernaut Juventus at the end of this season.
And as soon as he announced this, many names started to pop up to replace him in the Bianconeri bench.
Today Marca wrote an article citing the La Gazzetta Dello Sport printing editing saying how one coach might be able to land the managing job soon, thanks to the backing of Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
“Massimiliano Allegri’s imminent Juventus exit will leave a void on the bench at the Allianz Stadium and Cristiano Ronaldo has put Jose Mourinho’s name forward for the job,” the article read.
“La Gazzetta Dello Sport explained that Mourinho has two important people backing his candidacy, one being Ronaldo and the other Jorge Mendes.”
“Despite things not ending well between the Portuguese pair at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, that has long been forgotten and confined to the past,” they said.
“Mourinho, who delivered a historic treble to Juve’s bitter rivals Inter in 2010, isn’t well liked in Turin, which was seen as Manchester United beat the Old Lady this season at the Allianz Stadium and he reacted to taunts by cupping his hand to his ear after the final whistle.”
Meanwhile, the names of Lazio’s Simone Inzaghi, Chelsea’s Maurizio Sarri, and Bologna’s Sinisa Mihajlovic have been sounding loud to replace Allegri.
