Jose Mourinho, seen here leaving the pitch at the end of the UEFA Europa League final between Sevilla FC and AS Roma, has been sacked by the Italian club.

AS Roma has announced that José Mourinho and his coaching staff have left the Serie A club with “immediate effect.”

The 60-year-old Mourinho was appointed Roma coach in May 2021 and guided the Italian team to a European Conference League final win a year later. Last year, Roma and Mourinho also reached the Europa League final but lost on penalties to Sevilla.

Beaten 3-1 by AC Milan on Sunday, Roma is ninth in the Serie A table.

“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 – the club’s owners – in a statement.

“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.”
