Mexico FF reveals Mourinho approach

Mexico Football Federation president Justino Compean has revealed that Jose Mourinho and Marcello Lippi are battling to become their new coach.

Compean confirmed that Mexican Football Federation general secretary Decio de Maria will speak with the two currently unemployed coaches about the position following the dismissal of Hugo Sanchez late last month.

"De Maria will fly out next weekend to interview them," said Compean.

"We have appointments with Scolari and Lippi and we are also looking to meet Mourinho.

"We want to know firstly if they are interested in working here."

Jesus Ramirez has taken over as Mexico coach on an interim basis following the departure of Sanchez, who was dismissed after the Mexican U-23 squad failed to qualify for the Olympics.

"We know that none of them will be cheap, but money it is not an obstacle," Compean added.

"No matter how much it will cost, we want a winner."
