AS Roma have parted ways with head coach Jose Mourinho

Saban, Belichick, Carroll, and now Mourinho? Yes, one is a different sport, but Mourinho getting sacked is a reminder that a coach’s lifespan at one club is often not long. Our morning show, The Rome Show in the Morning on 12oz Sports, touched on this subject just today.

AS Roma has announced the departure of head coach Jose Mourinho due to a recent poor run of form. The team has only managed to secure one victory in their last six Serie A games and currently sits in the ninth position in the league standings. The club has named former Roma captain Daniele De Rossi as the new head coach, replacing Mourinho. Following a two-and-a-half-year tenure at Roma, Jose Mourinho has been relieved of his duties while Daniele De Rossi has been appointed as his successor. The Giallorossi’s recent form has been disappointing, winning only one of their last six Serie A matches and getting knocked out of the Coppa Italia by their city rivals Lazio, where Mourinho received a red card.

They are ninth in Serie A, 22 points behind league leaders Inter Milan.

Mourinho joined Roma in 2021 and spent two-and-a-half years in the role, leading them to the Europa Conference League title in 2022.



The 60-year-old also guided them to the Europa League final last season, where they were defeated by Sevilla on penalties. His contract was due to expire in June. Former Roma captain De Rossi was announced as Mourinho’s successor on Tuesday afternoon. Sky in Italy understands De Rossi will take charge until June, with the club having an option to renew his contract based on achievements and results.

Graham Potter and Antonio Conte were also considered for the role.
