The former Inter Milan had recently been sacked by Tottenham.
Sensational in Rome. After the club’s official announcement that Paulo Fonseca will no longer be the Giallorossi’s coach for next season, a new official statement has arrived that has dropped the bomb. Jose Mourinho will be the new coach from the 2021/2022 season with a contract until 2024.
ASRoma is pleased to announce that José Mourinho will be the new Technical Manager of the First Team starting from the 2021-22 season!
José Mourinho confirms: “After meetings with the ownership, I immediately understood the full extent of their ambitions for AS Roma. The incredible passion of the Roma fans convinced me to accept the job and I cannot wait to start next season. Daje Roma!”.
The former Manchester United and Inter manager had been sacked by Tottenham for poor results and, in an interview he gave, opened up the possibility of coaching a rival team of the Nerazzurri in Italy. In fact, Mourinho, during his two seasons in Italy at the helm of Inter, had had Roma as the main antagonist for the Scudetto. In 2010, at the end of a single championship, he won the 18th Scudetto in Siena on the last day against Ranieri’s Giallorossi.
