Former Roma manager Jose Mourinho has yet to return to the dugout but has been linked to top clubs in Europe, MySportDab reports.

He was recently spotted at Craven Cottage, gracing the VIP stands as Liverpool trade tackles with Marco Silva’s Fulham in Premier League matchday 33 clash.

Mourinho’s presence at the 52,000-capacity stadium in London sparked speculations the veteran football manager could be in the running to succeed Jurgen Klopp at Anfield in the summer.

Known for his on-field and off-field controversies, the former Chelsea, Inter Milan, Man United, Real Madrid, and Tottenham Hotspur manager has dropped titbits on a possible new goalkeeper system he would adopt on his next foray as manager.

Speaking with The Telegraph, the record UEFA club competitions winner said a new goalkeeping style is gradually taking over the game and he will be much ready to jump on the trend and implement it on his next managerial destination.

He described it as a “genius” shift and innovation in football that will gradually take over the game as top football managers continue incorporating it into their tactical plan.

“Why do you play with a goalkeeper, even if he is good with his feet, almost in the midfield, if you can do that with a proper player? I can see that substitution happening.

“And the coach who does it will be considered a genius,” Jose Mourinho said to The Telegraph.

“To have an extra player there … when the opposition is very low in the block and 10 minutes left? Let’s try it – yeah!” he added.

Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana and Bayern Munich’s Manuel Neuer are said be examples of goalkeepers departing off the traditional goalkeeping style for their overall assistance and involvement in the general play.

For instance, in Manchester United’s FA Cup win over Coventry, Andre Onana recorded several touches outside his goalkeeping box and was crucial to United offensives and press when Coventry drop deep and settle for low block.

According to Jose Mourinho, there will even come a time the goalkeeper will play the role of an outfield player, especially in the dying minutes of the game when the opponents retreat deep for a low block.

As for him, he is ready to adopt it, allowing his goalkeeper to press high up the field and maintain a high-line, especially when the team is on the offensive.

Pep Guardiola, Thomas Tuchel, Erik ten Hag, Inzaghi are some of the managers who favors the emerging new system of goalkeeping with Jose Mourinho’s recent endorsement set to give it a big boost.
