Jose Mourinho returning to management with Fenerbahce

Jose Mourinho is set for a speedy return to management with Fenerbahce, according to reports in Italy.

The former Chelsea, Man United and Tottenham manager was sacked by Roma in January after struggling to repeat the form which saw him secure top-six finishes in Serie A in his first two seasons at the Stadio Olimpico.

The 61-year-old did guide the Romans to the 2022 UEFA Europa Conference League title but lost the 2023 Europa League Final on penalties against Sevilla.

Ismail Kartal lost only one of his 38 Turkish Super Lig games in charge of Fener this season and amassed 99 points, but still finished second, three points behind bitter rivals Galatasaray, the third straight season the club have finished as runners-up.

Kartal’s one-year contract for a third spell at the helm of the Yellow Canaries in Istanbul is not expected to be renewed.

Mourinho will be reunited with several former players including Edin Dzeko – whom he managed at Roma before he was sold to Inter – as well as Fred, whom he signed at Man United while he will be only too familiar with 23-goal Michy Batshuayi who had a six-year spell at Stamford Bridge after Mourinho’s second spell at the Blues ended.

Mourinho had been linked with a job in Saudi Arabia and has agreed to appear on coverage of the UEFA Champions League Final between Real Madrid and Dortmund on TNT Sports coverage in the UK.
