In spite of having an “emotional connect”, Jose Mourinho has ruled out any possibility to join Newcastle United.

The long-awaited takeover is done. The Public Investment Fund(PIF) are the new owners of Newcastle United – owning 80 percent of the club. The takeover, which is worth about £300m, is a fraction of the overall size of PIF’s investments, which are in the hundreds of billions of pounds.

Later this evening, the club head coach – Steve Bruce – departed the club with a mutual consent. The board is now in search of a suitable replacement and have quite a few names available.

Newcastle searching for potential managers after salty Steve Bruce exit

1,000th game for Steve Bruce, a Callum Wilson opener, a ray of hope; all turned to dust as the clash with Tottenham on Sunday ended in 3-2 defeat. The 60-years-old manager had a lot to say over his sacking.

“I think it might be my last job. It has been very, very tough. To never really be wanted, to feel that people wanted me to fail & saying I would fail, that I was useless, a fat waste of space, a tactically inept cabbage head.” – said Steve Bruce.

Jose Mourinho breaks silence over potential move to Newcastle United

The 58-years-old Portuguese manager who worked as a translator under former Newcastle boss Sir Bobby Robson during his time in charge of Sporting Lisbon, Porto and Barcelona; is considered to be one of the best football managers in the world.

Earlier Sunday, when asked about speculations regarding his move to Newcastle in a press conference before AS Roma‘s game with Juventus, Jose said:

“The only thing I can say is that, for many, many years, I worked with one of the most important figures in the history of Newcastle, Sir Bobby Robson,” – said Mourinho.

“And so because of that I have always had a bit of an emotional connection with that city and that fanbase.”

Further, Mourinho added:

“I am here, I am really happy to be here, I am 100 per cent focused on the Roma project, the Friedkin project.”

Former Roma boss, Paolo Fonseca is also in talks with Newcastle for the job.

As things stand, the Magpies are in the relegation zone sitting 19th, 1 point away from last-placed Norwich. For what follows, the desperation for a better manager rises and the search for one intensifies at the St. James’ Park.
