Jose Mourinho is one of football’s finest coach in the history, and he hasn’t had to wait long after being sacked as Tottenham Hotspur manager two weeks ago to find himself another high-profile position.
Roma are seventh in Serie A, having lost three of their last five. They’re 12 points off Napoli and a European place, and will hope that Mourinho can put motivation and passion into the team to help them qualify for the Champions League.
Mourinho’s last spell in Italy saw him lead Inter for two seasons, during which he won the Scudetto twice, the Coppa Italia, the Supercoppa Italiana and the UEFA Champions League.
Roma are Mourinho’s tenth club in his 21-years managerial career. He started his career in Portugal with Benfica (briefly), Uniao de Leiria and Porto, before a three-year spell with Chelsea.
He joined Inter from the West London, leading them to a treble in the second season before moving on to La Liga and Real Madrid. Since then he’s coached exclusively in England, presiding over reigns at Chelsea (again), Manchester United and Tottenham.
Mourinho got sacked by Tottenham Hotspurs two weeks ago, few days to the Carabao cup final, which he’s suppose to led Tottenham to play the final game.
Immediately, after days of him being sacked, he got appointed to join Talksport spectators before Roma announce him as their new head coach ahead of Europa League return leg against Manchester United with a 6-2 deficit into the second leg.
