Jose Mourinho is about to sign a two-year contract with Fenerbahce to multiple reports. The Portuguese manager begins a new chapter of his career in the Turkish Super Lig, coaching in his first experience outside one of Europe’s five major leagues since leaving Porto in 2004. Mourinho, after parting ways with AS Roma last January, has been looking for a new job in recent weeks.

After coaching Porto, Chelsea, Inter, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Tottenham and AS Roma, Mourinho will now coach in a new competition. The Special One has coached AS Roma for the past two and a half years, where he won the UEFA Conference League in 2022 and reached the final of the UEFA Europa League last season, only losing on penalties to Sevilla. In a recent interview with Fabrizio Romano, Mourinho said he is ready to return to the sidelines in the summer of 2024. “I’m ready to start over. I don’t have to rest or think as usual. I’m ready.” I feel strong and good, but I don’t want to make the wrong choice. I have to be patient. My goal is to start again this summer.”

Turkish side Besiktas were also interested in appointing Mourinho as the club’s owner vice president revealed in a recent interview. However, it appears that Fenerbahce will eventually sign the Portuguese coach. This season, Fenerbahce was in the race for the title, but despite a final score of 99 points, the team finished in second place, behind city rivals Galatasaray. Mourinho’s mission will be to bring the title back to Fenerbahce for the first time since the 2013/2014 season.
