Mourinho clarifies his inability to travel to Africa


Jose Mourinho, the former coach of Chelsea and AS Roma, has expressed his reluctance to visit Africa, citing the fervent and enthusiastic fans in the continent. Mourinho elaborated that whenever he visits Africa, he finds it challenging to move around due to the overwhelming reception from fans. He mentioned prominent African players like Didier Drogba, John Obi Mikel, and Michael Essien, who hold him in high regard.

Speaking on FIVE with Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand, Mourinho emphasized his close relationship with African players he has coached in the past, highlighting their loyalty and sincerity.

“I cannot go to Africa. There are too many passionate fans everywhere. You know, I’ve had Didier Drogba from Ivory Coast, Geremi from Cameroon, Kalou from Ivory Coast, Obi Mikel from Nigeria, Essien from Ghana, and many others. Whenever I go to Africa, it’s overwhelming. The players love me, and even in Europe, where there are many African players, I feel appreciated.”
