Italian giants AS Roma have officially announced the appointment of former Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur coach, Jose Mourinho.
According to reports Mourinho signed a ‘top secret’ contract until June 2024.
The club confirmed to this new development through their twitter account.
“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 shared on twitter.
Meanwhile, the 58-year-old former Inter Milan manager also confirmed that he is now ready to take over as the new Roma manager for next season.
“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,” Mourinho confirmed.
The Portuguese gaffer was sacked by Spurs in April following a series of poor results which left the English side on the seventh position in the league.
However, other reports from the British media indicate that he was dismissed for refusing to take the players to the training ground over the club’s decision to agree to participate in the Super League.
Mourinho returns to Serie A at a time his former club (Inter Milan) were crowned this season’s champions, ending Juve’s nine year reign as the Serie A champions.
