Following his unceremonial dismissal from Tottenham last month, José Mourinho is now set to head to Roma in Seria A.

In a statement, Roma said: “The club are delighted to announce an agreement has been reached with José Mourinho for him to become our new head coach ahead of the 2021-2022 season”.

Roma’s president, Dan Friedkin, and vice-president, Ryan Friedkin, added: “We are thrilled and delighted to welcome José Mourinho into the AS Roma family. 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.”

Mourinho said: “After meetings with the ownership and [general manager] Tiago Pinto, I immediately understood the full extent of their ambitions for AS Roma.

“It is the same ambition and drive that has always motivated me and together we want to build a winning project over the upcoming years. The incredible passion of the Roma fans convinced me to accept the job and I cannot wait to start next season.”

Pinto said the club had been “blown away by José’s desire to win and his passion for the game”.
