Jose Mourinho has wasted little time in finding a new job following his sacking at Tottenham, with the Portuguese set to take charge of Roma from 2021-22 on a three-year contract.

The 58-year-old was relieved of his duties at Tottenham on April 19, with the former Chelsea and Manchester United manager failing to convince at a third Premier League employer.

His stock remains high, though, particularly in Italy where he has previously enjoyed considerable success with Inter, and a role as successor to Paulo Fonseca at Stadio Olimpico is set to be taken on after committing to a deal through to 2024.

What has been said? 

In a statement released on the club's official website, president Dan Friedkin and vice-president Ryan Friedkin have said: "We are thrilled and delighted to welcome Jose Mourinho into the AS Roma family.

"A great champion who has won trophies at every level, Jose will provide tremendous leadership and experience to our ambitious project.

"The appointment of Jose is a huge step in building a long-term and consistent winning culture throughout the club."
