Started his gradual downfall since the day he was hugging Materazzi after the CL final. He needs the right environment for him to peak (like the one he's had at Inter). Instead he went to places like Madrid and Manchester. Come on.

Downfall is such a harsh word. Mourinho is simply incompatible with high profile modern football. Those with real money also need real time to win, and Mou is not the type to last 5 years on the same bench. He owns the locker room until he doesn't, and he is cozy with the management until he isn't, and then it's game over. We are endlessly lucky that he abruptly left because it would've gotten very ugly with him during banter era and it would remain sour to this day, be assured.

Time is already showing what a feat Mou's EL trophy with United was, and it will only go on to show what an achievement the Roma conference trophy is, as Roma will go for another 10 years without winning anything most likely.

I meant downfall for his career and reputation. I still think that he's a top coach. He's been joining the wrong clubs that don't suit his philosophy. Yes he did get them some achievements, but it's not his potential. Maybe he should take a step back and coach a Portuguese club again or a mid table Serie A club with less demands and pressure I don't know. Good luck to him in Turkey anyway.

Midtable? Mourinho?

This move is fantastic for him. He rejected my local team because he had already agreed terms with them. It's exactly where he thrives.
Competing for a championship with aspirations for European glory at any level.

Could be a good move indeed. Like I said he should take a step back and this is one. I think it will benefit him. Also the atmosphere there is very competitive which suits him.
