Jose Mourinho insists he is happy to stay at Roma following Everton’s interest.
Everton are looking for a new manager after sacking Rafa Benitez and Mourinho is among the candidates being considered alongside Frank Lampard, Wayne Rooney and Fabio Cannavaro.
But the former Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham manager says he has no plans to leave the Serie A club.
‘In terms of emotion, passion, empathy, of being happy working with Roma, I say I am 11 out of 10,’ Mourinho said on Thursday evening.
‘I am truly, very, very happy to be at a club where I feel the people trust me. I couldn’t be happier than this.
‘In football terms, playing to finish between fourth and eighth place is obviously not what I want, but this is a moment of a different project for me and we will be better off next season.
