Saudi Arabian club Al-Ittihad is currently on the hunt for a new manager, and rumors suggest that they may be considering an approach for AS Roma’s manager, Jose Mourinho. The potential move comes after recent high-profile signings by the Saudi club, including the acquisition of Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kante, both of whom joined this summer.
Al-Ittihad’s pursuit of Mourinho indicates their ambition to elevate the club’s status in domestic and international competitions. Known for his success at top European clubs such as Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan, and Real Madrid, Mourinho possesses a wealth of experience and a track record of delivering trophies.
If Al-Ittihad were to secure Mourinho’s services, it would undoubtedly be a statement of intent and a sign of the club’s determination to become a team to be on the global stage. With his commanding presence on the sidelines and getting the best out of his players, Mourinho could potentially provide the leadership necessary to take Al-Ittihad to new heights.
In addition to the managerial pursuit, Al-Ittihad has already made a significant splash in the transfer market by securing the signatures of Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kante.
