Former Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho continues to rule himself out of the running for the vacant Newcastle United managerial role.

Roma manager Jose Mourinho has continued to rubbish rumours linking him to the Newcastle United job, following the dismissal of Steve Bruce at St. James' Park.

After the successful takeover by the Saudi Public Investment Fund earlier in October, rumours began to swirl around Bruce's departure and the possible replacements that the Magpies could target, and the new ownership parted ways with the English manager on Wednesday after a 3-2 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in the first game under their control.

Given the rumoured ambition of the new hierarchy, decorated manager Mourinho was linked with a move back to the Premier League, but he has reaffirmed his dedication to I Giallorossi, saying: "Newcastle job? I've decided to stay, I'm not leaving," as quoted by The Mirror.

The 58-year-old continued, saying: "I signed for a three-year project with Roma and I'm not going to leave my players."

Mourinho took over in Rome in the summer after his departure from Tottenham Hotspur last season, and he currently sees his side sit fourth in the Italian top flight with five wins from their opening eight league outings.

The Portuguese boss boasts three Premier League titles with Chelsea, three Serie A trophies, one La Liga title and two Champions Leagues, alongside a Europa League triumph and second-placed league finish with Manchester United.
