AS Roma has parted ways with head coach Jose Mourinho after a poor run of results.
Mourinho, who is popular among Giallorossi fans, was fired after Roma won only one of their past six Serie A games and currently sit ninth in the league.
Former Roma captain Daniele De Rossi is poised to be named Mourinho’s interim successor, with Roma hoping to sign former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte on a permanent basis at the conclusion of the season.
A Roma statement read: “We would like to thank Jose on behalf of all of us at AS Roma for his dedication and efforts since joining the club.
“We will always cherish our memories of his time at Roma, but we believe that an immediate change is in the best interests of the club.”
“We wish Jose and his assistants all the best in their future endeavours.”
Mourinho joined Roma in 2021 and stayed for two and a half years. The 60-year-old fared well, leading them to the Europa Conference League title in 2022.
Mourinho also led them to the Europa League final last season, where they were eliminated by Sevilla on penalties.
