While distancing himself from the job at Newcastle, Mourinho says he is a Magpies fan.
He said, "In relation to Newcastle, I have nothing to say. Absolutely nothing to say. The only thing I can say is that many, many years ago I was working with one of the most important characters in Newcastle's history Sir Bobby Robson.
"Because of that, I've always had a bit of an emotional connection to that city and fan base, but it's nothing more than that. I'm here and am really happy to be here.
"I am 100 percent focused on the Roma project, the Friedkin project."
