Pedro could regret his Jose Mourinho comments as Roma confirm appointment of ex-Tottenham boss

Just 15 days on from his sacking at Tottenham Hotspur, Jose Mourinho is back in management.

The former Chelsea manager has been announced as the new head coach of Italian giants AS Roma, taking charge ahead of the start of next season.

Mourinho has agreed to join the Serie A side on a three-year contract, meaning he has wasted little time in making a return to management, although he will not officially begin his new post until after this summer’s European Championships.
