José Mourinho To Become The Next England Manager?

The article quotes the Times and states that José Mourinho, who despite his leaving Chelsea still enjoy a lot of popularity in England, is a possible candidate for succeeding the chronically unpopular Steve McClaren as manager of the Three Lions. It also states that if England doesn't succeed against Russia in their Euro qualifier match today (which England eventually lost 2:1 before the article was published), McClaren would be on the brink of being fired by the FA as England manager. At the same time, Mourinho, who if he takes the job would also work again with his former CFC players Terry and Lampard, also publically stated that he has no interest in becoming Portugal's manager, as he feels that while he wants them to be successful, they have better chances of success with Luiz Felipe Scolari leading them.

What do you think? Would Mourinho make a good manager for England? Despite my being critical about him, I believe he can give England something new and fresh, which could make them a team that could compete for a title again.

As much as I despised him for his arrogance while at Chelski, I would love to see him manage England. He's the kind of passionate, firey personality that the squad needs to instill a sense of pride and heart to the team. Unfortunately, I don't think it will happen.

Either way, McClown needs to go. Pronto.

I also hate him for the very arrogance you mention, but nobody can ever deny that Mourinho wasn't enthusiastic about his job. Even if he is considered an arrogant bastard, that man showed his emotions and put a lot of effort into what he was doing. If Mourinho loses his temper, then beware because, and speaking from experience as a half Italian from my father's side, that South European temper isn't something to laugh about. Emotions are part of the game, and some people seem to have forgotten about this in this last decade.

I believe the last time I've seen a truely upbeat English team was during Euro 96 in England. Maybe there was something more for them than just playing at home in Wembley and coming back after being banned from the 94 World Cup that put them on fire. There were the players, Paul Gascoigne, and the man who made the success possible: Terry Venables. He never seemed to be stiff, quiet and uptight like Eriksson and McClaren always seem to be. This is why I also agree that a manager should be able to show his emotions. Klinsmann certainly didn't hesitate to show them when he was Germany's manager.

Are you kidding? Screwing around with the English media is Mourinho's favorite hobby.

I believe part of the agreement with Chelsea was that he couldn't manage in England as his next job...so i guess that means he can't manage the national team either...yet?

Absolutely. It always amazed me how people would bite on the stuff he would come out with, when it was as obvious as anything that he was teasing the press. It worked too, no focus on the players who could get on with their jobs, whilst Mourinho could carry on (no doubt pissing himself laughing in private) with his "battle" with a media who simply adored him for making their jobs so easy - "What's he said today? Great, put it on the back page!"


I'd be more than happy to see him become England manager. But equally, I think that it's ridiculous to keep blaming the manager for the incompetence of the players. Eriksson has a world-class record, yet the players would often be abysmal. The media then blamed Eriksson. Sooner or later people are going to cotton on to it being the responsibility of undoubtedly talented but overpaid, pampered, self-interested tosspots who aren't fussed if England lose because they just shrug their shoulders, get back in their Ferraris and back to their mock-Tudor mansions.

It wasn't Eriksson's fault that some of the supposedly best players in the world can't stop themselves from stamping on an opponent. It wasn't Eriksson's fault that people who are supposedly professional footballers are terminally incapable of hitting the target from 12 yards. It isn't McClaren's fault that a supposedly vastly superior set of players don't seem to give a shit about playing for England.

Stop blaming the manager and blame the players. No matter what manager is in charge, the Premier League multi-millionaires ought to be able to beat Macedonia at home even if he plays a 2-2-6 formation. It's time people realised that.

From what I've read, the deal only includes managing a team in the Premier League, so in theory Mourinho could become England manager now if the FA desires that. There isn't anything in that deal that says he cannot become England's manager until the end of the 07/08 BPL season.

Doesnt matter who coaches them. Doesnt matter how talented the individual players are.

Some teams have a winning culture. Some don't.

I'd like to see Mourinho in charge of England, he would make an impact. But the fact of the matter is, we become obsessed with the manager when things go wrong, it's as if everything would be solved if the coach was sacked. This is what the English press wanted after Eriksson, an English manager, well they got it, and look where we are now. Without rambling on, yesterday's disaster against Russia was the same old story with England, unable to string more than a few passes together, unable to hold onto the ball and possesion, unable to score more than a goal against average opponents, and unable to stay away from the self-destruct mode.


In Arsene we trust!!

Ummm wouldn't it make more sense to have somebody who's actually English manage the English national team?  Confused

You'll never see a Russian in charge of the Canadian national hockey team...

It's no longer uncommon for a country to have a foreign coach train their national team. Eriksson, McClaren's predecessor, is Swedish; Scolari, the Portugal manager, is actually Brazilian; Panama's manager Guimaraes is a Brazilian who became a Costa Rican citizen; Gus Hiddink, the Russia manager, is Dutch, etc.
