Italian side, AS Roma have announced the appointment of Jose Mourinho as their new head coach for the 2021/22 season.
Former Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid manager Mourinho has only been out of work for less than a month after he was sacked by Tottenham.
But he is now set to return to Serie A to manage Roma, who confirmed the departure of Paulo Fonseca earlier on Tuesday.
Mourinho spent two successful seasons in Italy from 2008-2010 when he won the league twice with Inter Milan along with the Champions League and Coppa Italia.
He has signed a deal until 2024 with Roma.
“We are thrilled and delighted to welcome Jose Mourinho into the AS Roma family,” Roma president Dan Friedkin and vice-president Ryan Friedkin said in a statement.
“A great champion who has won trophies at every level, Jose will provide tremendous leadership and experience to our ambitious project. The appointment of José is a huge step in building a long-term and consistent winning culture throughout the club.”
Mourinho spent 17 months in charge of Tottenham and was sacked with the club in seventh place in the Premier League.
