AS Roma have announced Jose Mourinho as the club’s new manager.
Following the decision to part ways with Paulo Fonseca on Monday at the end of the season, Roma needed 24 hours before the big confirmation of securing Mourinho on Tuesday afternoon.
“The club are delighted to announce an agreement has been reached with Jose Mourinho for him to become our new head coach ahead of the 2021-22 season,” Roma’s brief statement said.
