Mourinho To Replace Fonseca As Roma Coach From Next Season
AS Roma have announced Jose Mourinho as the new head coach ahead of the 2021-22 season.
Mourinho, sacked by Premier League club Tottenham last month, will replace fellow Portuguese Paulo Fonseca who
will leave Roma at the end of the current campaign.
Mourinho returns to Italy where he led Inter Milan to the treble in 2010.
He also won the Champions League with Porto in 2004 and three Premier League titles with Chelsea
The move came a few hours after the club’s American owners announced that current coach Paulo Fonseca will
depart at the end of this season. Mourinho’s contract is for three seasons.
“We are thrilled and delighted to welcome José 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, José will provide tremendous leadership and experience to our ambitious project.
“The appointment of José is a huge step in building a long-term and consistent winning culture throughout the club.”
Mourinho previously coached in Serie A at Inter Milan, leading the Nerazzurri to a treble of titles in 2010 that included the Champions League.
More to come…….
