AS Roma coach Jose Mourinho has been tipped to become the first Serie A manager to lose his job in the coming season.
The Portuguese tactician is back in Italian football for the first time since his spell at Inter Milan, during which he led the club to an historic treble during the 2009/10 campaign.
Mourinho has been sacked by his past three clubs in the Premier League, with many claiming that his management style is outdated for the current generation.
Former Lazio manager Delio Rossi seemingly agrees, believing he will be the first to go in the 2021/22 season, along with Simone Inzaghi.
"Mourinho, certainly, as I know what it's like to work in Rome," Rossi told TMW Radio when asked who he think will be fired first in Italy next season, as per Squawka.
"I'd also say [Simone] Inzaghi, because it will not be easy for him at Inter.
"He's picking up a squad that won the Scudetto and, comparing to his predecessor Antonio Conte, he, at the very least, needs to win something."
Mourinho's new charges open their 2021/22 Serie A campaign with a clash against Fiorentina at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday, 22 August.
