Roma have announced that Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff have left the Serie A club. 

Mourinho became the Giallorossi's 60th coach in May 2021 and led them to Europa Conference League glory a year later. 

He also guided the Italian side to the Europa League final last year but they were beaten 4-1 on penalties by Sevilla after extra-time in Budapest. 

Club owners Dan and Ryan Friedkin said: "We would like to thank Jose 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. 

"We wish Jose and his assistants all the best in their future endeavours."

Announcing the Portuguese coach's departure, an official statement added: "AS Roma can confirm that Mourinho and his coaching staff will leave the club with immediate effect."

Mourinho, 60, struggled to keep his emotions in check this season and was sent off for the second time in four days last week during an action-packed derby with Lazio. 

His side lost that Coppa Italia quarter-final tie to their fierce rivals 1-0 and the defeat was followed by a 3-1 reverse at AC Milan last Sunday to leave Roma a lowly ninth in Serie A. 

Mourinho won three Premier League titles, the FA Cup and three League Cups during two spells in charge of Chelsea after winning the Champions League with Porto.

He also lifted the Champions League with Inter Milan, claimed the LaLiga title at Real Madrid, triumphed in the Europa League with Manchester United and took over at Roma after his departure from Tottenham.
