Jorge Jesus reveals Everton invite after leaving Benfica: ‘I didn’t go because I was used to winning titles’ – Benfica

The Portuguese coach is yet to link with any club after leaving Luz

Jorge Jesus said on Tuesday that he had the opportunity to make his debut as a Premier League manager but that he had rejected the possibility because he wanted a team that fights for trophies. “When I left Benfica, I had the opportunity to go and coach teams from all over the world, especially in England, at Everton. I didn’t go to Everton because I’m used to winning titles and not matches,” he revealed to Brazil’s Spor TV on ‘Bem, Amigos’, the coach who hasn’t coached any club since December when he left Luz .

Jesus says coaching Brazil is 'irrefutable':

Note that Frank Lampard took over the destinies of the toffees in February, succeeding Rafa Benitez, and is trying to avoid the descent of the Liverpool team, currently in 16th place in the English championship.

When Flamengo left for Benfica in 2020, JJ guaranteed that it wouldn’t happen if there was no Covid-19. “The main problem for me leaving was the pandemic, otherwise I would never have left Flamengo. I thought of my children and said: ‘I can help them more there [em Portugal] only here [no Brasil]“, says Jesus, 67 years old.
