Tottenham fans react as Jose Mourinho is appointed AS Roma manager
Mourinho was sacked by Tottenham Hotspur only a couple of weeks ago following a rough seventeen-month spell in North London. While there were some positives during his time, the manner in which the club crashed out of the Europa League and the decline in form in the Premier League since December meant that the Portuguese was shown the doors.
Speaking in a recent interview, Mourinho had hinted that he would be taking a short break from management. However, turns out that will not be the case as he is set to return to Italy as the manager of AS Roma, starting from the 2021/22 season. A report from Goal.com claims that the former Real Madrid and Tottenham manager has signed a three-year deal with the Giallorossi.

This will be Mourinho’s second stint in Italy having previously managed Inter Milan, whom he led to great success, including a UEFA Champions League triumph. It will certainly be interesting to see how he fares at Stadio Olimpico once he replaces Paulo Fonseca come summer.
Tottenham fans had a lot to say about the shock appointment of Mourinho as the AS Roma manager and here are some of the reactions from the supporters on social media.

best of luck to him just because he wasn’t a fit for spurs doesn’t mean he’s lost his managerial skill. but I do believe spurs have ruined him in the PL so need to go else ware to get his mojo back

This has happened all to quickly for me. He told Levy I’m out if Tottenham as I have a better job lined up. You won’t commit to buying new players for next season so I’m off!!
