Villar told COPE,

“It was a beautiful experience at Roma, until a person arrived that we all know. I’d rather keep silent about him than talk about him. My journey with Roma was cut short after his arrival, which put me in a challenging predicament.”

Villar continued by outlining some of the challenges that led to his brief stay at Sampdoria, which he described as the “most challenging circumstance” he had ever encountered in sports. Although Getafe does have the option to acquire him at €3.5 million (£3.1 million), his long-term prospects are uncertain.

In recent weeks, Mourinho has been associated with both Brazil and Portugal. It has also been said that the former Tottenham manager is with how his second season at the club is progressing.
