Luis Filipe Vieira as president of the Benfica club claimed to want to bring in new coach Jose Mourinho. He even boasted about the money that must be spent to bring the coach.
As we know, Jose Mourinho is currently unemployed after being expelled from the club Manchester United. A lot of news links the coach to other big clubs in Europe.
Actually there are two names that most want the coach, just call Real Madrid and also Inter Milan. But besides the two clubs, Benfica is also reportedly targeting Jose Mourinho.
Benfica itself is an eternal rival of the Porto club, for those of you who don’t know, Jose Mourinho once panned success with them. Seeing the conditions that exist at Benfica at this time, actually the news circulating is not mere nonsense.
Last week, Benfica also just released Rui Vitoria so they needed a new coach to achieve success. But their desire to bring Mourinho is not easy, because Mourinho claimed he did not want to return to Portugal in the near future.
Mourinho saw himself at the peak of his career so he did not want to gain success in the second caste league in Portugal. Mourinho is still patient looking forward to offers from big European clubs and decides to be unemployed until the end of this season until there is a definite offer.
Vieira also claimed to be close friends with Mourinho, except that until now he has not tried to offer a cooperation with the 55-year-old coach.
