Jose Mourinho has left Serie A side Roma with immediate effect, APA reports citing ESPN.

Mourinho's contract was up at the end of the season but, following their 3-1 defeat to AC Milan on Sunday and with the club in 9th in Serie A, the owners and the manager have parted ways.

Mourinho's three-year spell at Roma peaked with them winning the Europa Conference League title against Feyenoord in Tirana. It was their first trophy in 11 years in their first European final since 1991.

But after a tough 2023-24 season, the final straw appears to be the defeat to AC Milan at the weekend. It came after a poor run of form where Roma were knocked out of the Coppa Italia to local rivals Lazio on Jan. 10, and had just one win in six league matches. But just last week, he was reiterating his commitment to the club. "I've been here for two years and five months and I'm the only person here who hasn't missed a single training session in that time," Mourinho said. "For me there are no illnesses or bad moods.
