Even though he has been having a rough patch with different teams lately, Jose Mourinho remains one of the most decorated managers in the world. His CV is quite incredible, as it has the world’s biggest clubs as well as some of the biggest players and trophies on it. Jose Mourinho’s career so far has brought him two UEFA Champions League titles and three Premier League titles.
His recent sacking at Roma was considered harsh, especially after his European success with them in the past two seasons. After being out of a job for a few weeks, Jose Mourinho is now reportedly ready to take the reigns at a new club, with reports linking him with a reunion with a former Tottenham Hotspur player.
Jose Mourinho reportedly heading to Bayern Munich
If recent reports are true, Jose Mourinho could be on his way to Bayern Munich for his eighth European club, after the Portuguese manager has previously managed the likes of Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, and AS Roma.
Jose Mourinho was sacked by Roma last month after a run of poor results, with Danielle De Rossi taking his place at the club. The two-time Champions League winner has since been linked with several clubs, including one of the clubs in the Saudi Pro League, which he turned down twice last summer.
Mourinho is now the leading candidate to replace Thomas Tuchel at Bayern Munich if the Bavarians decide to part ways with the German coach in the wake of the 3-0 defeat by league leaders Bayer Leverkusen.
Xabi Alonso is leading an unlikely title charge over his former side in the league and claimed the bragging rights to put Leverkusen in a sweet spot for the title after beating Bayern Munich 3-0 on Saturday.
Harry Kane’s performance under Jose Mourinho
Jose Mourinho’s reported move to Bayern Munich could see him reunite with former Tottenham Hotspur player Harry Kane, who played for two years under the legendary Portuguese manager.
Harry Kane went from being a goalscorer to a complete forward capable of doing more than just scoring under Jose Mourinho, who created an entirely new role for the England captain.
Harry Kane was more of a deep-lying forward under Jose Mourinho, with the Englishman always dropping deep to receive the ball and play passes to his overlapping wingers, most especially Son Heung-Min.
Kane acknowledged that this significantly increased his overall goal contribution and that he was surprised by Mourinho’s dismissal at Tottenham despite having a good relationship with him.
