Jose Mourinho has been announced as the new manager of AS Roma.

It comes after the two-time Champions League winner was sacked by Tottenham earlier this season.

The 58-year-old will replace fellow Portuguese coach Paulo Fonseca after the three-time Serie A winners announced earlier today he would leave at the end of the season.

The former Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid man had been previously linked with the vacant Celtic job.

He entered the bookmakers' odds at 12/1 on Betfair to replace Neil Lennon who resigned from the post at the end of February.

Mourinho returns to Italy having previously won a treble in the country - including his second Champions League title.
