Former Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho, has reached an agreement with AS Roma to become the club’s Head Coach for the 2021/22 campaign.
The Portuguese manager, who was sacked in April after just seven months in charge due to Tottenham Hotspur’s poor performance, has agreed to a three-year contract with AS Roma which will run till June 2024.
In the early hours of today, AS Roma announced that their current manager, Paulo Fonseca, would leave the club at the end of the current season. Hours later, they announced their agreement with Mourinho.
In response, Mourinho said,
“Thank you to the Friedkin family for choosing me to lead this great club and to be part of their vision.
“The incredible passion of the Roma fans convinced me to accept the job and I cannot wait to start next season”.
This is Jose Mourinho’s second spell in Serie A after his famous two seasons spent in Inter.
