The first and last time Jose Mourinho managed an Italian side, Inter Milan, he won the Champions League.
Will he be lucky a second time with AS Roma which no doubt is a top club? The rivalry between Milan based teams and Rome based clubs will surely be reignited by Mou's presence.
Italian football has been dominated by teams from both cities... especially AC Milan, Inter Milan and the trio of Juventus, AS Roma and Lazio.
Already Inter Milan have won the Scudetto which will further task or challenge Mou as he steps in next season to change the tide of AS Roma.
A critical look at Mou's style of coaching shows that he may succeed again with AS Roma. He believes in robust play. He loves hard tacklers. His teams are always very physical in approach.... That's what Italian football is all about.
Italian football is very robust with great emphasis on the physical attributes of the sport. It is less of finesse and skills but more of pace, power and precision. These qualities are the tools Mou loves to work with. It gave him huge success in Inter Milan.
Let wait till next season commence to know if Mou will replicate his magic at Inter Milan in his three-year deal with AS Roma
