Jose Mourinho has lashed out at Roma’s owners after being sacked by the Serie A club last month.

Mourinho was sacked on January 17 following a 3-1 defeat at AC Milan that left Roma ninth in the table, just two days after comparing himself to Harry Potter for raising expectations at the club.

Roma’s owners, American businessmen Dan and Ryan Friedkin, appeared to disagree as they fired Mourinho, but the Portuguese manager has now hit back by claiming his dismissal was ‘unfair’.

Writing as an ambassador for Football.com earlier this week, Mourinho said: ‘European competitions are about to start, particularly the Champions League, perhaps the most important competition in the world calendar. I won’t be there for these final stages, not because I’ve been eliminated before, but because I’ve been “eliminated” by someone who has little knowledge of football. 

‘That’s life, full of ups and downs, and I’m on the up, despite the dismissal that was as unexpected as it was unfair. But I’ll be back, and even more eagerly and confidently, for these UEFA matches.’

Mourinho left Roma after two-and-a-half years at the club, having led them to Europa Conference League glory in 2022, before taking them to the Europa League final the following year.

But things unravelled quickly in his final season, causing Roma to act as they replaced him with former player Daniele De Rossi.

De Rossi has won three of his first four games at the helm to guide Roma up to sixth, while Mourinho is still waiting for his next opportunity in the dugout.

He has been linked with a possible move to Saudi Arabia, but Mourinho’s vow to return to UEFA’s elite competitions indicates that he feels he has unfinished business in Europe.

Mail Sport revealed last month that Mourinho is keen to return to Manchester United, while he would also love the opportunity to manage Chelsea again.

Moving back to the Premier League is far from guaranteed, though, and he has been reportedly been learning German to prepare himself for the possibility of succeeding Thomas Tuchel at Bayern Munich.

Tuchel has come under increasing pressure over the past week after his side lost to Bayer Leverkusen and Lazio, and he is hanging onto his job by a thread ahead of this weekend’s Bundesliga clash with VfL Bochum.
