Jose Mourinho’s term as the head coach of AS Roma has come to an official end, as the Italian club declared his departure through an official statement. Mourinho assumed the role as the 60th coach of AS Roma in May 2021 and witnessed significant moments during his tenure, such as leading the team to victory in the Conference League in Tirana on May 25, 2022, and guiding Roma to the Europa League final in Budapest in the previous season. Despite these accomplishments, the club has decided to part ways with the Portuguese manager.

In the official announcement, AS Roma expressed gratitude to Mourinho for his passion and dedication during his time with the club. Owners Dan and Ryan Friedkin conveyed their appreciation, stating, “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.” The decision to terminate Mourinho’s contract suggests that the club is aiming for a fresh start, possibly in pursuit of different football philosophies or to address performance concerns. While acknowledging Mourinho’s contributions, the Friedkin brothers indicated their 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 would be provided shortly. This creates speculation about potential successors and whether the club will opt for internal solutions or consider external candidates.

Jose Mourinho, a highly experienced and decorated manager in European football, is now poised to explore new opportunities in his coaching career.

As the news circulates in the football world, enthusiasts and analysts will closely monitor developments at AS Roma, including the appointment of a new coach and the direction the club takes in the upcoming seasons.
