Roma announce Jose Mourinho to take over as club's new coach

The Portuguese coach will move to Italy after being fired by Tottenham recently

Jose Mourinho will replace Paulo Fonseca as Roma's head coach at the end of the season, the Italian club confirmed on Tuesday.

Mourinho, who was sacked by Tottenham earlier this month, has agreed on a deal to coach the Serie A side until the summer of 2024.

It will be the Portugueuse coach's second spell in Italy following his stint with Inter Milan, where he won the treble before moving to Real Madrid.

“Thank you to the Friedkin family for choosing me to lead this great club and to be part of their vision,” Mourinho told Roma's official website.

“After meetings with the ownership and Tiago Pinto, I immediately understood the full extent of their ambitions for AS Roma. It is the same ambition and drive that has always motivated me and together we want to build a winning project over the upcoming years.

“The incredible passion of the Roma fans convinced me to accept the job and I cannot wait to start next season.

“In the meantime, I wish Paulo Fonseca all the best and I hope the media appreciate that I will only speak further in due course. Daje Roma!”
