AS Roma have ended their association with manager Jose Mourinho, who spent two and a half seasons with the club.
The decision was prompted by Roma’s poor start to the 2023-24 season, with seven defeats in their first twenty games.
The final blow came in a 2-1 loss to AC Milan. The owners, Dan and Ryan Friedkin, released a statement expressing gratitude for Mourinho’s contributions but asserting the necessity of change.
The Statement reads: “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,” said Dan and Ryan Friedkin.
” 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. We wish José and his assistants all the best in their future endeavours”
Roma’s current position in the table is ninth, though they still have an outside chance of securing a Champions League spot.
However, Mourinho will not be leading them any further due to the team’s recent dismal performances.
