Roma club announced the dismissal of Jose Mourinho from coaching the team in the middle of his third season in charge of the Giallorossi.
The decision of the Italian club management comes against the backdrop of a decline in results in the recent period, the most recent of which was the 3-1 defeat by Milan in the Italian League.
The “Special One” contract with Wolves was extended until the end of the season, but in light of the decline in results, both parties saw that change now was the best option for everyone.
Roma’s owners spoke to the official website about this decision, saying, “We want to thank Jose Mourinho for his passion and efforts since arriving at the club. We will never forget the great memories he created at this club.”
They added, “But we believe that immediate change is the best option for the benefit of Rome. We wish success to Jose and his assistants in the future.”
This is the fourth time that Mourinho has been dismissed during his third season with his team, as if the matter had become a “complex” for the Portuguese coach.
It started with his dismissal in his third season with Chelsea, then he failed to win any championship with Real Madrid in his third season as well, but he left at the end of it.
At Chelsea in his second term, he was sacked during the third season, and the matter was repeated at Manchester United, and is now being repeated with Roma.
It remains to be noted that Mourinho led Roma to achieve the first continental championship in their history by winning the European Conference League title.
The “Special One” also led Roma to the Europa League final last season before losing to Sevilla on penalties.
In total, Mourinho led Roma in 138 matches in all tournaments, winning 68 of them and losing 40, while drawing 30 other matches.
