Before signing for Roma, José Mourinho was close to experiencing a championship where he has not trained.
The revelation was made by Karl-Heinze Rummenigge, former general manager of Bayern, who confirmed the approach to the Portuguese coach to guide the Bundesliga team.
“Mourinho was our chosen one to assume the technical command of the club and I admit that he confessed to me that he wanted to come to Germany to coach Bayern. Unfortunately it was not possible. That’s why we advanced to the hiring of Julian Nagelsmann from RB Leipzig», he said in statements to Italian television Rai Sport.
The former German forward also left some praise for the ‘special one’.
“I have a lot of respect for José Mourinho and I hope he will succeed in Roma, because he is a great coach, one of the best in the world,” he noted.
