Mourinho has not been fully open about not coaching the cub in the Summer as the position is still very open and he could fill it in even though Pochettino is looking like he has already landed the job.
But the Portuguese, who won the Europa Conference League trophy last year, insists he is concentrating on winning the Europa League this season.
He also wants to finish as high as possible in the Italian top-flight.
“I don’t talk to friends, comrades, or journalists. If a few months ago our CEO [Pietro] Berardi said he was sure I would stay, that is his interpretation.
“If this time Mr. Zazzaroni [a journalist] said what he said is an interpretation of him, I’m not talking to anyone.
“The situation is clear, from a contractual point of view I still have one year on my contract. Football is football, sometimes contracts aren’t the most important thing. All good, all calm, the next one is always the most important game,” Mourinho told reporters.
