The coach, who left Mourinho's technical team, could have first experience in front of team.
Rui Faria was José Mourinho's right-hand man for over fifteen years, but at the end of last season, still at Manchester United, he decided to stop for a while and then make a professional commitment as head coach. And that challenge may be nearing completion. According to Plataforma, the leaders of Fulham are watching the Portuguese coach and have already begun the first talks.
At the age of 43, and after a five-month vacation with his family in Portugal, Rui Faria feels prepared for his first challenge as coach. Manchester United's coach José Mourinho, was the first to advise him on Fulham, according to the collected information, even because he knows the club, where his son José Mário plays, well. Still, Mourinho's former assistant did not want to talk directly to Fulham before talking to his family, to whom he had promised to stop for a year, only returning in 2019. He had even refused Sporting earlier in the season because of this.
This position made Fulham talk to other coaches, namely Thierry Henry, a former player, but the truth is that Rui Faria is the one that most pleases the leaders of the Premier League club. The next few days will be decisive.
