Potential Celtic boss Jose Mourinho is a huge fan of Scott Sinclair, according to Joe Cole’s past comments in the Daily Record.

Mourinho, who Gianluca Di Marzio claim has been offered the Celtic job, worked with Sinclair when he was a youngster at Chelsea.


And the Portuguese boss is said to have been impressed by the Celtic winger’s talents during his time at Stamford Bridge.


“He was brilliant in our pre-season and I remember Mourinho really liked him. He actually showed a bit of faith in Scott – he played a few games that summer in 2005.”

Whether Mourinho will eventually end up at Celtic remains to be seen.

The Bhoys reported approach for him seems highly ambitious, and Celtic have already moved to play down the rumours - according to The Sun.

However, if Mourinho was to arrive at Celtic then it would be surely be one of the biggest managerial appointments in Scottish football history.

Sinclair has now been with Celtic for three years, since his £3 million move to Parkhead (the Guardian) back in 2016.
