Barely two weeks after his sack, Jose Mourinho has been appointed as the new manager of Italian League side AS Roma from the 2021-22 season.
The 58-year-old Portuguese manager will be in charge of the Serie A club until the summer of 2024 after succeeding Paulo Fonseca.
Tottenham fired the two-time Champions League winner owing to a poor run of results but the 'Special One' has been handed a clean slate by his new employers.
Meanwhile, reactions have been trailing the appointment of the former Chelsea, Manchester United and Spurs handler on social media.
While some believe he is deserving of the job, others trolled him and expect that he will start making excuses once his team starts to lose games in a row.
Following the reactions online, the announcement were trailed with different comments but in all, most had to wish him well in his new job.
Rambo (@ramboFYI) is one of the excited fans to see Mourinho return to football and back in Italy saying:
"Excited to see Jose bring back the old Roma, got a strong feeling this might be what both Jose Mourinho and Roma need."
Another one made reference to his successful stint at Inter Milan and believes that he will replicate that feat with Roma.
"Mourinho will succeed at Roma, he did at Inter and he will do it again."
Meanwhile, Premier League legend who also played for Barcelona Gary Lineker says 'an eternal job for the 58-year-old tactician.
However, in all of this excitement, some fans believe the Serie A club made a huge blunder hiring Jose Mourinho after claiming that they don't know what they are getting themselves into.
kris (@BigBossDawg84) also shared the sentiment that Roma have made an error, saying this decision was their biggest mistake ever.
"Feel really sorry for you, guys. The biggest mistake in your club’s history. There was a good thing going on until just now.
"Shame to see your club get so low. Jose is here to pop the rest of your balloons and pi'ss in your punch. Such a shame. #ripRoma."
