Jose Mourinho will join Serie A on a three-year contract


Former Spurs manager, Jose Mourinho will join Serie A side, AS Roma on a three-year contract at the end of the season according to a statement on Giallorossi’s website. Mourinho was fired as Spurs boss after a string of poor results that all but ruled out the North London side from a highly coveted top-4 finish. Mourinho will replace his fellow Portuguese compatriot, Paulo Fonseca who will step down at the end of the 2020/2021 Serie A season after joining Roma in 2019. 


The statement reads: “AS Roma are delighted to announce an agreement has been reached with Jose Mourinho to become the club’s new head coach. Jose Mourinho has agreed to a three-year contract with the Giallorossi that will run until 30 June 2024. He will begin his new role ahead of the 2021-22 campaign. 

 “We are thrilled and delighted to welcome Jose Mourinho into the AS Roma family,” club president Dan Friedkin and vice-president Ryan Friedkin said. “A great champion who has won trophies at every level, Jose will provide tremendous leadership and experience to our ambitious project. 

“The appointment of Jose is a huge step in building a long-term and consistent winning culture throughout the club.” Mourinho, 58, is one of the most successful coaches in the history of the sport – having won 25 major trophies in his career to date. 


The list of clubs he has previously managed includes FC Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur. “Thank you to the Friedkin family for choosing me to lead this great club and to be part of their vision,” Mourinho said. “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.
