Jose Mourinho has been sacked after two-and-a-half years in charge at Roma

AS Roma have parted ways with head coach Jose Mourinho following a poor run of form; the Giallorossi have won just one of their last six Serie A games, and sit ninth in the league; former Roma captain Daniele De Rossi set to be named as Mourinho’s successor.

The Giallorossi have won one of their last six Serie A games and were recently knocked out of the Coppa Italia by city rivals Lazio, where Mourinho was sent off.

They are ninth in Serie A, 22 points behind league leaders Inter Milan.

Mourinho joined Roma in 2021 and spent two-and-a-half years in the role, leading them to the Europa Conference League title in 2022.

An agreement with former Roma captain De Rossi to take over is being finalised. Sky in Italy understands De Rossi will take charge until June, with the club having an option to renew his contract based on achievements and results.

Former Brighton and Chelsea boss Graham Potter, as well as Antonio Conte, were also considered for the role.
