Jose Mourinho is eager to start the new season as he is announced as the new manager of Roma.
Termed "the special one" in the past, Jose Mourinho has been appointed as the new in charge of the Italian side. Roma announced its new coach just a few hours after the club confirmed that the current manager Paulo Fonseca would depart at the end of the season.
Roma's general manager Tiago Pinto said:
"When Jose became available, we immediately jumped at the chance to speak with one of the greatest managers of all time. We were blown away by Jose's desire to win and his passion for the game: no matter how many trophies he has won, his primary focus is always on the next one. He possesses the knowledge, experience, and leadership to compete at all levels."
Pinto is also confident that the 58-year-old is the right guy and will be the perfect coach for the club's project.

The news comes only a few weeks after he was relieved of his duty as a Tottenham Hotspur coach. He joined as a manager on November 20, 2019, and stayed for 17 months. It was the first time in his 21 years managerial career that the Portuguese did not manage to win a single trophy.
After a disappointing spell at the London-based club, Mourinho said that he would wait to be back in football a few days ago.
Mourinho will be returning to Serie A, having spent two seasons with Inter Milan. His term at Inter is possibly his most successful time in his career. He won two consecutive Serie A titles completing a treble in his final tenure that included a Champions League.
