Jose Mourinho has been dismissed as manager of AS Roma after two-and-a-half years at the Italian club.

Roma have announced that they have parted company with manager Jose Mourinho following a poor run of form that has left the club ninth in Serie A.

Mourinho took over as Roma manager in 2021 shortly after being sacked by Tottenham and enjoyed a successful first campaign there, winning the club their first trophy in 11 years by winning the Conference League.

In his second season, he guided his team to the Europa League final where they lost to Sevilla, but struggles in the league created tensions between himself and the board, and those tensions only increased this season with the form of the side only getting worse.

“AS Roma can confirm that Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff will leave the club with immediate effect,” the club said in a statement.

“Further updates on the new First Team coaching staff will follow imminently.”
