Jose Mourinho confirms his new role as Fenerbahce coach

Two-time Champions League winners Jose Mourinho will become the next coach of Turkish club Fenerbahce, he revealed on Saturday.

The Portuguese coach, who won the Champions League with Porto and Inter Milan, hasn’t worked since being fired by Italian Serie A club Roma in January.

He has formerly managed Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham, and Real Madrid.

“Good evening Fenerbahce fans, see you tomorrow at Kadikoy (the Istanbul suburb where the club is based) and let’s start our journey together,” Mourinho said on his new club’s X account.

The 61-year-old Portuguese acknowledged the transfer while serving as a pundit for TNT Sports television during the Champions League final at Wembley Stadium.

According to Turkey’s NTV news network, Mourinho’s appointment will be made public on Sunday.

According to reports, Mourinho will sign a two-year contract with Fenerbahce, one of Istanbul’s three major clubs that have not won the domestic league in ten years.

Mourinho was fired by Roma in January after two and a half years as manager, with the club battling in ninth place.

He led Roma to the inaugural Europa Conference League victory in 2022, as well as the Europa League final from last season.
