Lyon manager Bruno Genesio has expressed his support for former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho as his potential replacement.
Recent reports from France claim that Lyon are targeting Portuguese tactician Mourinho as the direct replacement for the aforementioned Genesio who’s expected to leave the club at the end of his contract this summer.
In his reaction to the news, Bruno Genesio told reporters that Jose Mourinho is a very good choice for Lyon.
The Lyon manager praised his Portuguese counterpart before adding that he’s one of the best managers in world football.
Jose Mourinho has been linked with several jobs since he was sacked as the Manchester United manager in December.
The former FC Porto and Inter Milan manager recently revealed that he has turned down several offers to return to management after his not so good experience at Old Trafford.
He was linked with the Real Madrid job with many pundits rooting for him to seal a return to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu dugout only for the players to kick against his appointment.
In the end, Real Madrid opted for Zinedine Zidane who led the club to three successive Champions League titles between 2016 and 2018.
The Lyon job is not one of the most attractive ones in European football and it remains to be seen whether the club can convince Mourinho to be their next manager.
