Jose Mourinho has agreed to become the next manager of Serie A side AS Roma. ‘The Special One’ had been a target for Celtic, according to journalist Duncan Castles; however, it always seemed extremely unlikely that the Portuguese boss would end up at Paradise. The move to the Italian capital.
Mourinho, 58, left ‘European Super League’ side Tottenham Hotspur last month ahead of the EFL League Cup Final against Manchester City, a bizarre decision considering he was the only manager to have beaten Pep in a cup final.
Mourinho is one of the best managers of the 21st Century and the link with him was unlikely due to his enormous wages. However, given the praise Mourinho has previously bestowed upon the Celtic support and his current situation, there was some hope that an unlikely deal could be struck. That far fetched speculation has ended now that Mourinho has agreed to move to Roma.

Celtic are still without a manager, over two months after Neil Lennon left Celtic. The support are, quite rightfully, becoming unsettled as the seasons winds down and the new campaign draws closer.
Last we heard, Howe was working behind the scenes on his potential staff – although this has been going on for some time. Brendan Rodgers was talking to Howe about the prospect of becoming the next Celtic manager. Rodgers was an instrumental in the success of the last few years and it is a case of what could of been as he sits in the Top 4 with Leicester City. Meanwhile Celtic will look to rebuild under Dominic McKay, a new Director of Football and a new manager with the chance to knock Rangers off their newly found perch.
