The Italian first division club AS Roma is drawing conclusions: After crashing in the table, the club is now parting ways with star coach José Mourinho. His team recently had its worst season in more than 20 years.

AS Roma has parted ways with coach José Mourinho with immediate effect. The Italian Serie A club announced this on Tuesday morning. “On behalf of all of us at AS Roma, we would like to thank José for his passion and commitment since his arrival at the club,” Roma owners Dan and Ryan Friedkin said in a statement.

Mourinho’s time at AS Roma will be remembered fondly. However, an immediate change is in the best interests of the club. “We believe it’s necessary,” Friedkin said. The 60-year-old Portuguese has been the coach at the Roman club since 2021, but recently his work was unsuccessful.

The team has recently remained winless in three games in a row and is having its worst season in over 20 years. After 20 games, Roma is in ninth place in Serie A with 29 points; the last time things went worse was in the 2002/03 season under Fabio Capello (tenth with 27 points).

Mourinho was Paulo Fonseca’s successor and scored an average of 1.7 points in 138 games. In the 2021/22 season he led the team to victory in the Conference League and last season to the final of the Europa League. The Portuguese star coach also rekindled enthusiasm for the Giallorossi in Rome and drove the average attendance to over 60,000 for the first time since 2001, previously it was around 40,000.
