🇵🇹 Why Mourinho is hoping Ronaldo leaves Italy

New AS Roma coach Jose Mourinho has teased Cristiano Ronaldo to leave Juventus in order for the coach to be successful in Serie A.

Ronaldo's future with Juventus is still undecided for next season, while Mourinho is busy preparing his new squad to compete in the Italian league since his famous success with Inter Milan.

"He should leave Italy now and leave me in peace!" Mourinho joked to talkSPORT.

"Everybody says, and I say the same, he is not 25 any more. He is 36 and he doesn't score 50 goals, but how many did he score? The record is [still] incredible, the numbers speak by themselves," the Portuguese manager added.

Meanwhile, Mourinho will be watching Ronaldo as their nation kicks off its 2020 Euro campaign as defending champions against Hungary on Tuesday.
