Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, has told the club’s board to appoint former Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, as the club’s new coach.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Ronaldo approached Juventus hierarchy and asked the bosses to offer Mourinho the Old Lady managerial job after the club announced over the weekend that manager, Massimiliano Allegri, will not coach the club next season.
The report claimed that respected Portuguese football agent, Jorge Mendes, also wants Juventus to appoint Mourinho as Allegri’s successor.
Ronaldo and Mourinho worked together for three years during their time at Real Madrid.
Mourinho was sacked by Man United in December and hasn’t managed a club since then.
The 56-year-old had reiterated his desire to return to return to management this summer and hinted that it would be in a league that motivates him.
