Manager Jose Mourihno sacked by Roma

Roma have sacked Jose Mourinho with immediate effect, with the club lying in ninth place in Serie A, according to the Daily Mail. 

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

He also guided them to the Europa League final last season, before they were defeated by Sevilla on penalties.

In a statement, Roma said: 'We would like to thank José on behalf of all of us at AS Roma for his passion and efforts since his arrival at the club.

'We will always have great memories of his tenure at Roma, but we believe that an immediate change is in the best interests of the club."

Lazio are five points off Serie A's final Champions League qualifying spot and last week were knocked out of the Coppa Italia by city rivals Lazio.
