Jose Mourinho has made a quick return to football after accepting an offer from Roma to become their new manager from next season. Having only left Tottenham last month, their supporters have been reacting on Twitter.
The Portuguese boss spent 17 months in charge at The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium but was sacked by chairman Daniel Levy following an indifferent run of form.
Now, he will return to Serie A where he enjoyed some success previously with Inter Milan. Mourinho will begin work during pre-season ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.
The 58-year-old has also managed Porto, Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid during his managerial career. He also worked on the coaching staff at Barcelona when Sir Bobby Robson was in charge.
Now, Mourinho will aim to revive Roma’s fortunes after being named as the man to succeed Paulo Fonseca who will depart once this season is over.
Roma are currently seventh in the division and were thrashed 6-2 by Manchester United during the first leg of last week’s Europa League tie.
Tottenham fans have met the news of Mourinho’s appointment with intrigue and have been reacting on Twitter to the news.
Here is what the fan base are saying as the manager makes a swift return to football.
i’m sorry roma fans you’ll get through this tough period

Honestly interested to see how this one shakes out
Could be a chance for him to take Roma back to at least playing in the Champions League and see what he does with their squad
