Jose Mourinho reveals what he will miss the most when he retires

Roma’s coach Jose Mourinho has revealed in an interview that he will miss the match day routine if he decides to end his illustrious coaching career. However, he hopes he can be at the dugout for a very long time.

Mourinho has two years remaining on his contract at Roma.

What did Mourinho say?

In an interview with L’Osservatore Romano, per Football Italia, Mourinho said:

“On the way to a match, I mean leaving the hotel, getting off the bus, arriving at the stadium, the walk to the dressing room, the walk from the dressing room to the pitch before the start of the match, there is a lot of spirituality in all of this,” 

“It is never a routine, no matter how many times you play in the same stadium, and you always do the same route, it is a moment that has something that you can’t see, but that you can feel a lot. I think it is of enormous beauty and I think that the day I stop coaching, which I hope will not be soon, will be perhaps the thing that I will miss the most.

“To feel this dimension that takes me in directions that I have never shared with anyone, and that today perhaps I share for the first time. Walking towards the game and talking to Him [God].”
