Jose Mourinho ‘learning German’ as he eyes Bayern Munich job

Jose Mourinho would be willing to join Bayern Munich if they offered him the head coach job and is already learning German in anticipation, according to a report.

Mourinho is currently out of work after being sacked by Roma last month, bringing an end to his two-and-a-half stay in the Italian capital. He notably guided I Giallorossi to glory in the inaugural Europa Conference League in 2022, but ultimately failed to lead them back into the Champions League.

Despite being linked with a third spell at Chelsea over the last month, 90min recently reported Mourinho is unlikely to return to Stamford Bridge. However, another opportunity could open up for the Portuguese coach.

Thomas Tuchel is under increasing pressure at Bayern after they were beaten 3-0 by Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday, with the reigning champions now five points behind Xabi Alonso’s pacesetters in the Bundesliga standings.

BILD report Mourinho, who has ‘flirted’ with the Bayern job in the past, is learning German and would be interested in heading to the Allianz Arena.

In addition to his native Portugal, Mourinho has managed in England (Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur), Spain (Real Madrid) and Italy (Inter and Roma), but has never coached in Germany in his illustrious career.

90min reported last month that Mourinho could receive offers from Al Ahli and Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr having been open about the possibility of managing in Saudi Arabia one day – he declined a £30m-a-year offer from Al Hilal last year.

There is also the possibility he tries his hand at international management, with a number of jobs expected to open up after this summer’s European Championships and Copa America. Mourinho would be open to taking the England hot-seat if Gareth Southgate departs.
