José Mourinho appointed Roma manager for next season

Portuguese manager José Mourinho will be taking over as manager of Italian club AS Roma next season. The announcement was made by the club today on social media, just two weeks after the 58-year-old was sacked by Tottenham.

“Thank you to the Friedkin family for choosing me to lead this great club and to be part of their vision,” said Mourinho, who will be replacing Portuguese coach Paulo Fonseca.
