AS Roma have confirmed that Jose Mourinho will be their new head coach from the start of the 2021/22 season.
This comes after the Portuguese mentor was sacked by Tottenham Hotspur last month.
“The club is delighted to announce an agreement has been reached with Mourinho for him to become our new coach ahead of the new season,” said the statement.
The side also confirmed that head coach Paulo Fonseca will leave at the end of the season.
“On behalf of everyone at AS Roma, we would like to thank Paulo Fonseca for his hard work and leadership over the past two years,” stated the club chairman Dan Friedkin.
“Paulo guided the team through many challenges, including the Covid pandemic and a change of ownership, and did so with selfless integrity and great character.
“We wish him all the best for his future endeavours and know that he will be a great asset wherever he goes.”
