Mourinho takes decision on joining Saudi Arabian club

Roma manager, Jose Mourinho, has rejected the chance to join Saudi Arabian club Al-Ahli.

Mourinho was viewed as a potential marquee appointment for the Saudi club.

The former Chelsea and Manchester United boss had been linked with Paris Saint-Germain earlier this season.

But Mourinho now appears set to stay in Italy, having told Al-Ahli that he does not have any interest in managing the club.

According to Sky Italia, Mourinho attended a meeting with Al-Ahli’s president in London to inform him that he did not want the job.

It appears that a variety of Saudi clubs were hoping to lure the Portuguese to the league, having already brought in players such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, but he has not chosen to take up the option.
