Jose Mourinho claimed that the incredible passion of the Roma fans convinced him to take the Italian side’s job.


The announcement came as a surprise, but the Portuguese tactician claims he can’t wait to start his chapter next season. Mourinho, formerly known as the ‘special one’ in his tenure with Inter Milan, will face a tough task in shaping Roma to be title contenders next season.

“The incredible passion of the Roma fans convinced me to accept the job and I cannot wait to start next season,” Mourinho said.

The club confirms that Mourinho will take charge of the Italian side next season. The club’s president and Vice president confirms that the club is delighted to welcome the Portuguese to the Roma family.

“We are thrilled and delighted to welcome José Mourinho into the AS Roma family,” the club confirms.

“A great champion who has won trophies at every level. José will provide tremendous leadership and experience to our ambitious project,” the club added.

Meanwhile, Chelsea Coach Thomas Tuchel reveals the difference between PSG and the London side. He explains that you can lose sleep and there is no time to relax in the Premier League.

“To go from Ligue 1 to the Premier League? It’s brutal, honestly. Very brutal. In France, we played the same number of matches, two cups and there are also 20 teams in the Championship. But the intensity and challenge of the Championship are really very different here. It’s a completely different level,” Tuchel revealed.

“It’s pretty ruthless, it keeps you on your own and it makes you get up early in the morning. There is simply no time to breathe. There is not too much time to sit down, to be relaxed or comfortable. And that’s a good thing, it sharpens your mentality and mind. That’s what I find impressive in this club,” he explained.
