It is the end of the road for Jose Mourinho at Roma as the club announces changes to its management
Jose Mourinho’s tenure at AS Roma is officially over after the Gialorossi announced that the Portuguese gaffer has been relieved of his position as head coach today.
The announcement came through an official statement, marking the end of Mourinho’s tenure as the Giallorossi’s coach.
AS Roma part with Mourinho
Mourinho took charge as AS Roma’s 60th coach in May 2021, and his tenure had notable moments, including leading the team to victory in the Conference League in Tirana on May 25, 2022. Additionally, he guided Roma to the Europa League final in Budapest last season. However, despite these achievements, the club has decided to part ways with the Portuguese manager.
In the official statement, AS Roma expressed gratitude to Mourinho for his passion and efforts during his time with the club.
Dan and Ryan Friedkin, the owners of AS Roma, stated, “We would like to thank José on behalf of all of us at AS Roma for his passion and efforts since his arrival at the club. We will always have great memories of his tenure at Roma, but we believe that an immediate change is in the best interests of the club.”
Mourinho to leave Roma with immediate effect
The decision to terminate Mourinho’s contract suggests that the club is seeking a fresh start, possibly in pursuit of different football philosophies or to address performance concerns. The Friedkin brothers emphasised their respect for Mourinho’s contributions but indicated a belief that an immediate change is necessary for the club’s best interests.
The statement also mentioned that updates regarding the new First Team coaching staff will be provided shortly. This leaves room for speculation about who might step in to lead AS Roma forward and whether the club will look for internal solutions or consider external candidates.
Jose Mourinho, a highly experienced and decorated manager in European football, will now be seeking new opportunities in his coaching career.
As the news spreads across the football world, fans and pundits alike will be keenly following developments at AS Roma, including the appointment of a new coach and the club’s direction in the upcoming seasons.
