EPL: Mourinho set for return to England after only five months at Roma

Roma manager, Jose Mourinho, has emerged a potential target for Everton if they decide to sack Rafa Benitez.

Mourinho only took charge of the Serie A side in July.

However, it is believed the Portuguese would be open to a return to the Premier League if the right club came calling.

Pressure on Benitez has ramped up following the 4-1 defeat in the Merseyside derby to his former club Liverpool in midweek.

The defeat extended Everton’s poor run to seven losses and two draws in their last 10 Premier League games.

Throughout much of the game and at the final whistle, home supporters jeered and chanted against both the manager and the Goodison Park board.

Co-owner Farhad Moshiri has publicly backed Benitez since but the dreaded vote of confidence will only last so long if results don’t improve.

And if Moshiri and Co do decide to part company with Benitez then former Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham manager Mourinho’s availability will be looked into.
