    Messi is Not Coachable - Mourinho Names Player He Regrets Not Signing

    Fenerbahce manager, Jose Mourinho, has spoken about the player he would have liked to sign as a manager.

    Mourinho, answering quickfire questions on TNT Sports, admitted he would have loved to sign Lionel Messi.

    But he deemed that the “little guy” was uncoachable as he was the best in the generation.

    Mourinho said: “One player that I never signed but wished I had? In my generation, of course, I would say the little guy [Messi].

    “The little guy was not coachable but I have to say, in our generation, he was the best.”

    Argentina legend Messi has also revealed that Inter Miami will be his last club, even though he is not ready to retire.

    “Inter Miami will be my last club,” Messi said. “I love playing football. I enjoy everything much more because I am aware that there is less [left to play].”

    “I’m still having fun,” Messi also explained at another point of the interview. “At the club [Inter Miami] I am lucky to have teammates and friends by my side. Also in the national team.

    “I enjoy the little details knowing that, when I don’t play anymore, I’m going to miss it.”

    Messi could have rejoined his boyhood club Barca last summer after nearing free agency at Paris Saint-Germain.

    Messi’s Inter Miami contract expires at the end of 2025, but it is unclear whether he plans to extend his terms while he has also not ruled out possibly helping Argentina defend its Qatar 2022 title at the next World Cup in 2026.
